Date changed for BATIK WORKSHOP. If you love the look of batik and want to learn to create that fascinating effect using watercolors, check out this 2 day workshop. It will be held in my studio near Cincinnati on November 13 and 14. (Dates were changed from Septemeber.)

Posted below are several of my paintings done with this fascinating and ancient process. We'll be using hot paraffin, rice papers, regular watercolor paints, and sumi ink. Every artist will be painting their own original works of art, using special techniques to create their one-of-a-kind batiks.

Cost is $150 and includes two very full days of instruction as well as the use of melting pots, hot wax, and an assortment of tools. Contact me at sandymaudlin@gmail.com for more info. Do hope you can join us.



Painting on canvas brings back college memories for sure. Back then - the 60's - acrylics had just been introduced and, as I remember, they were very, very plastickie. These two canvas were collaged with various bits of rice papers and football cards, then painted with Fluid Acrylics, my favorite medium right now.

Both have been hung side by side in their new home in Richmond, Indiana. The person they went to is a banker, so I managed to print my own 20's, 50's, and 100 dollar bills then transfer the ink from the prints onto the canvas - seen in reverse, backwards. Ditto for some golf ads, too. This was fun to create but a little scary because I wasn't positive they would like it. They did:-D
