I'm working on something new. It involves wood and wax and an opportunity to learn new things. I love learning new things. Thanks to some funding through CKCA, I'll be learning something about the art of beekeeping this summer, and with any luck, turning that learning into art as well. The plan is to document the work of local beekeepers and then experiment with painting encaustic wax on top of the prints I produce. My first ever shipment of wax arrived this week from Waxworks (yeah Canadian supplier!) and it smelled unbelievably good. If my enthusiasm for opening this package stands as a marker for my enthusiasm for this project, it's gonna be a fun one. I'll be updating here as I make progress. As I fall in love with bees.
