Encaustic Workshop at Majestic Ranch, Boerne TX

Encaustic Workshop at Majestic Ranch, Boerne TX

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.  Boerne is a lovely little Hill Country town located not too far from San Antonio.  Majestic Ranch is an Arts Foundation atop a hill with classrooms for painting, printmaking, ceramics, photography, sculpture, and more.  It also includes a pavillion and gazebo…and many breathtakingly beautiful views of the Hill Country.  When R&F comes to Texas, this is where they hold their workshops.

Early Saturday morning, I met up with the other Texas Wax artists in the hilltop classroom for the two-day, all-day workshop.  It was wonderful — kind of like being back in advanced studio classes at art school — each of us working on our own creative projects, and meanwhile chatting with other members of our art tribe.  Only this was over in just 2 days instead of a whole semester, so there wasn’t much chance to watch each other’s creative development, nor to get to know each other much better.  We did hang out for a while after the Saturday workshop, over dinner and a beer at a brewpub in Boerne.
