Every cloud…

Managed to fall down the stairs on Thursday, thought I’d broken my ankle! Honest! However only a bad sprain. So, on the plus side spent Friday, prostrate, adding to my boxes and got a free pass sans children today and been experimenting with my new encaustic medium. ┬áDon’t think it’s meant for textiles but it’s interesting, if stinky. ┬áHere are some of my boxes and results of using the encaustic. And no, I am not sharing the disasters here…

…also just discovered one plus side to living in a building site: at some stage the empty shell looks a bit like a gallery. Right, off to melt more wax. Ps my images owe a lot to Freud and Jenny Saville.
