Art Expectations Day 130


130 GreatExp jaggers encaustic

I took a wonderful mini-workshop today at The Encaustic Center in Richardson Texas (just north of Dallas) taught by Deanna Wood. So much fun! I have never painted with wax before and let me say, it’s addictive! I’ll have to go again soon. Here is a link to their website in case you are interested in learning about it too:

I worked on four pieces during the workshop. When I got home, I adapted one to fit my page for the day.
Page 144: Dickens implies that Jaggers pays people (or bribes them maybe) to lie on the stand for his clients. He has a “helper” named Mike who has found a drunken man with a black eye. Mike claims that this fellow will say whatever Jaggers wants him to say. Jaggers gets upset at Mike for saying this out loud! This drunken fellow, dressed up as a pastrycook, will claim that he was with the “accused person” on the night in question, all night. Jaggers is not pleased at all with this “witness” that Mike has found and he sends them away.

Here are a few pictures from The Encaustic Center workshop and link to Deanna’s website also:
