one of my new year’s resolutions was to learn something new…i am so happy to say that i have learned encaustic painting…and i was taught by my amazing friend & wax artist Leah MacDonald…i spent the weekend in my studio melting wax & pouring it over some of my favorite photographs…i felt like an artist & a little kid all at once…i am smitten….i think my images have met their mate…i am now working on creating a body of encaustic work….if you are interested in owning a handmade encaustic piece of art, please contact me directly (info@elizabethmessina.com)…and is you are interested in turning your own images into encaustic art visit WAXWORKSPHOTO….and for those of you with the time & inclination your can hire LEAH to come to your studio & teach you all the beautiful secrets of hot bees wax…so now on to my next resolution…more balance in my life…wish me luck…xoxoxo

sundays are for suppers…life often seems to swirl around, between commitments & the ever changing needs of family & loved ones…a home cooked meal can feel oh so out of reach….sundays are full of possibilities….a day to reflect…relax…and cook…slow cooked feasts for those we love…so even when the week feels heavy & long….reclaim your sunday…set the table….& eat good food….xoxo
