Art store closed ? Encaustic paintings are some of the easiest mediums to recycle
because you can both reactivate and use the wax that is there, or completely cover with new layers
and begin fresh . This week I layer over a painting that was headed in a completely different direction .
In this week's video I touch on what happens to all of us at one time or another when the
"creative flow " just isn't there. Perhaps it is happening to many more of us all at the same time now?
A time that is completely unexpected and troubling in so many different ways.
We look to creating to lift us up and provide relief , and release , as it should . But what happens when
we can't find any flow ? The more stress the less flow is what I have found in my own creating anyhow.
When this happens I find that putting pressure on to create a large piece doesn't help matters . There is a time to push and a time to pull. We all react in different ways of course and I can only share what I have found helpful to keep painting, creating, and exploring and finding the joy in both the discovery and the process.
I hope you find this week's video helpful if even to know that if this "slow flow, no flow" is happening to you as well you are not
Supplies I used this week:
Each week I list the supplies I used in the video here on the blog for you so that you can see and easily find the items used for that week's technique .
If you purchase items from the links provided it sometimes generates a few cents in commission which goes right back in to creating videos for you on the youtube channel. It does not raise the cost for you in any way, and is the same link you would find on a regular amazon prime search . Thank you ahead for you support of Wax on Wednesdays in any way ! Also , although the photos here can help you easily find the product . I also recommend that you look at your local art /hobby store to make sure you are getting the lowest price. Sometimes with weekly 40% off coupons basic items can be found at a better price.
