Wax(in’) Blue opening night

I had a lovely evening mingling with encaustic artists at the Wax(in’) Blue exhibit.

It was naturally a gathering of FUSEDChicago members, but also artists who had come in from as far as Michigan to peruse this exhibit.

As the title indicates, the theme was blue, and it was great to see the spectrum of blue on display.

I also enjoyed seeing a few figurative pieces in this exhibit, since truly painting in wax is a challenge I have not mastered.

Since it was at Morpho Gallery, I wore my Morpho pendant, with a blue dress of course.
