No, I'm NOT abandoning the encaustics medium.  I can't wait to return to my studio (in March) and smell the molten wax heating.  Yet, traveling with works of encaustic are definitely a problem, while traveling with liquid based acrylics makes so much sense and has proven to be such great fun.  As some of you may remember (or not) I mentioned a wonderful Nicholas Wilton Art2Life workshop I attended two weeks ago on Moloka'i.  That's where my work with acrylics was rekindled and I've had a wonderful time painting, repainting, and posting my 12" x 12"  practice boards.  You can see them a few of them on Pinterest or on Instagram and obviously, even here! Fun!
