 In Arty Heaven, Encaustic Wax

I came across a blog on t’interweb recently….    The title ‘The Strange Art of Ironing Out Depression‘ instantly caught my attention, and I knew the article couldn’t be about anything other than painting with wax!

I am forever banging on about the therapeutic and healing properties of encaustic, and how it can help all sorts of people in so many ways.   This article sums that up perfectly.

So, don’t take my word for it, read about 69 year old Zdena Šarić, who proves that you’re never too old, too young, or too anything else, to work with wax, and benefit from it….

(Especially if you….  or your friend…. claims  “not to be able to draw a straight line”…!!)
