“The only word I know to use at this point is ecstatic. That’s how I feel even after a nine hour car drive, a couple loads of laundry, hours spent catching up on emails, and putting all the workshop supplies away.Ecstatic that this workshop provided a space where twelve beautiful women tapped into something very good and unique in each others presence. Ecstatic that we allowed a bond to form so quickly among us, that we took part in a greater vision and it proved to have yielded more than we could have imagined.”

“Your home, that table, the studios, art everywhere, scones and brownies and soup and coffee (and wine) and 12 woman, all came together to make it what it was. I am back with a new vision of how I want to be as an artist and where I want to take my art including the business of art. I was certainly not expecting that at all.”

“The week of WinterWax was wonderful.  I am still enjoying that deep reaching sigh!  You are all amazing and I feel blessed to have been a part of such an inspiring group!  Thank you Trish, Kathryn and Brenda! I have successfully completed a number of additional pieces for my show since arriving back home!  Ready, set, go!”

“For months I looked forward to Winter Wax, not really knowing what to expect.  It exceeded my expectations in every way. Not only did I learn new things about encaustic, I learned a lot about myself and met so many amazing like-minded women.  The lodging accommodations were comfortable and cozy, and the meals were healthy and delicious.  The loveliest of memories were made that I will carry with me always!”
