Lisa Stamper Meyer Blooming Yucca Painting in Progress

"Blooming Yucca" is one of my submissions to the Bulverde Area Art Center for the June/July exhibit. Tomorrow evening is our New Exhibit Reception.

Mr. Tabby was understanding enough to stop on the side of Interstate 10 outside Junction, TX in order for me to get a blooming yucca picture for inspiration. I finished it up in the Tangerine Tabby Alfresco Studio (aka backyard).

Memorial Day

Mr. Tabby and C

Are we going to make it?

Waiting for a stuck friend

There is no better way to spend Memorial Day than with family and friends doing something that we love. We spent the weekend in the Hill Country camping, riding and grilling with friends and families who have all made it through multiple deployments.

Weekends like this are why they are willing to fight for our freedom. Please take a moment to honor those who were not able to come home to their families.

May Day


This weekend, I made some time to play in the studio. I made these two encaustic pieces in honor of the beautiful May day.

I also had a play date with G where we practiced enameling with a torch in her home studio. I'll post some pictures when I turn the components that I made in to something wearable.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!

She's Baaack...

My big kiln is back in action after way too many weeks on the fritz. She has all new relays now and fired perfectly last night.

Above are some components that I began in the Denise Stillwagon Leone class that I took last week at Wired Designs. I can't wait to use the techniques that I learned.

Good Dog!

Lulu took care of some business this morning. I found this coral snake when I was watering. He was two feet long and quite dead. Lulu dispatched of him before I went outside. You can tell that he's a bit chewed up.

Red and yellow, kill a fellow... Good dog!

Encaustic Again...

The big kiln is still broken, so I had to play with some of my other toys. Here's another try at encaustic.

Unexpected Visitors

Lulu usually keeps me apprised of the deer that pass through the back yard. Today, she was going crazy with her barking so I went to see what she found.

Apparently, she was trying to tell me that the deer have gotten huge and funny looking! That's what happens in the Texas countryside when you have no fences. Now, if they'd just eat that long grass so that we don't have to mow...
