Yes, I'm working on the alien notion that I may call myself an artist too! But the "REAL" artist, Daniella, is on a roll these days! She a constant source of inspiration and amazement. This woman cannot stop being an artist for even one minute. It oozes out of her pores. She sees the artistry in every big and little thing, and she expresses herself vividly, with her painting, her writing, her infectious laughter. She has a new and delicious BLOG, Encausticopolis, which has become a kind of sketchbook for her. Her art work is enjoying amazing success. She paints almost exclusively in encaustics (with pigmented beeswax) and is represented in a gallery in Carmel, one in Salem, Oregon, and just this week got an invitation to Palo Alto to talk about putting work in a gallery there. Her art is even selling from her website (http://www.daniellawoolf.com) and people are asking for studio visits. So her life has gotten busy and very exciting. I am immensely proud of her and lucky to have her great energy in my every-day life! Even her socks and shoes are fabulous!
