Their voice is unfamiliar...well, what were you expecting, you question yourself? I don't know, I guess the same voice in my head that reads all of the online script and text...silly , I know.
And when you finally get to meet in person,what do they look like?...a little taller?thinner? I suppose...in online photos you only get pieces of people like a jigsaw, and your mind puts them together how it wants...You recognize the smile but in a face to face meeting you get the added benefit of a hug!
|Sue Simpson, myself and Crystal Neubaur|
When I heard Crystal was going to be here in Oregon from her usual dwellings on the shores of Illinois, I jumped at the chance of meeting this very special friend face to face, after knowing her through my internet art groups...
It was a wonderful meeting her and spending time...and as a bonus I got to meet Sue Simpson as well, who was also in the same art group from many years ago...
And although this year I wasn't able to be at the Encaustic Camp it looked so inviting and full of creative energy I will be planning on being there next year...Crystal was one of the teachers and has a nice write up about it here.
I also got to meet these delightful and talented ladies...

...as well as a few more I didn't get snaps of! Quite a treat for me to say the least!
I even got to try my hand at encaustics and I I think I'm hooked...I
love layering, colors and textures so I am thinking encaustics is an art form that is here to stay with me!
