At the Cameron Art Museum -

Emily and I had a great evening out at the opening of "Well Suited" featuring costumes designed by Alonzo Wilson for HBO's series Treme. Throw in the velvety sounds of Leon Kid Chocolate Brown, some amazing gumbo, mufullettas, and crawdads and it was like being in New Orleans.

Best Hubby Ever

My soul mate/life partner/ best friend/super hubby made this awesome encaustic table for me. He used a solid door and covered it in flashing giving me a perfect surface that can be easily cleaned and won't burn under the power of my blow torch. LOVE HIM!!!

I'm trying out a gesso specifically designed for use in encaustic painting. The weather is perfect for going outside and heating up the wax!!!
