It has been a challenge for me to find time at home to do any artwork. I just cleaned out my studio space and rearranged my hot plates so I hope this configuration will work better for me.  I also just sent out my check to the Atlanta Artists Center to take a one day encaustic workshop. These workshops always help me to kick start a project and I can concentrate on just the work. Since my studio space is in my house, I have so many distractions. The TV, phone, dog, laundry, dishes, etc… So I find I have to fly away to be able to work.  If I could find affordable space I would rent it. The Miami art district has space but it is to far to travel to and many of the art lofts do not have adequate ventilation for encaustic work. I also like to go to the workshops as I hope in the next year or two I can offer these workshops in South Florida.
