I spent this past weekend with ten other members of the Austin group of Texas Wax in an encaustic painting workshop at Majestic Ranch in Boerne, TX.

A Painter’s Obsessions

"Orange Crush" | Oil on canvas | 6" x 6" | © 2009 Marilyn Fenn -- For the past year or two, I've been thinking a lot about what really matters to me as an artist.  What matters most...and what doesn't?

Working in Wax Exhibit Continues Through June 21

The Working in Wax Exhibit at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek, CA -- in which I have three paintings displayed -- continues through June 21, 2009, so you can still catch it if you are in the Northern California area.  There's a Culture + Cocktails Reception for “Working in Wax” on June 18, 6:00—8:00 p.m.

I’m on Cloud Nine from the 5×7 Art Splurge at the Arthouse!

Thursday night, my husband and I went to the Artists Preview party for the 2009 5x7 show at the Arthouse.  I was most surprised and thrilled to see that my two little paintings got a primo spot in the exhibition!  On the main wall, under the writing, top shelf.  They looked so good there!

I think that artists have a responsibility to work as fiercely as they can in their studios in exchange for the privilege of making things that the world doesn\’t necessarily ask for. — Gregory Amenoff
