While Andy and I were enjoying the Boat Races in Key West, November, 2010, we stopped at the historical local bar The Green Parrot. I spotted a very shiny, pretty, and large catalog printed by The Studios of Key West. Being the pack rat, the catalog made it back to the Cypress House Inn with us and then home.

Encaustic workshop!!!! Only 12 students allowed? No flight expense? Over a long holiday weekend? Stay at the Cypress House Inn Key West? No snow? Car parked for the weekend, and within walking distance? What if the class is already full (it is November, and it is impossible but the snow birds)?!!! It is more economical to work with books but I miss people....Ok...but do I like the work this artist makes with encaustics?
Decisions and Goals
After quick research from home (thank God for Google), reviewing Kim Bernard's art, philosophy, video, and everything I could find, within a week the class was booked.
If you are on the goals for 2011 adventure with me (due by 1-31-11), this meets my goals of learning more about a technique, working with other artists, and travelling. This also meets the budget, because there is no car rental or flight required!
