Zac-Enacaustic Star!

It was lovely to meet up with Zac again after a whole year! Zac has had a go at the encaustic art for the past 3 years--he is now 8 years old-hard to believe he was just 5 when we first met him.When asked what colours he wanted to use he replied"My usual red and yellow!"
He created a beautiful picture in no time at all--and then his sister Emily had a go using shades of blues and reds.
She created a lovely scene with lots of distance in it-a cave with a path leading off into the distance.

----its become a tradition at Shobdon that Bill brings one of his Christmas cakes for all the traders to enjoy--and this year when it was cut-the smell of alcohol was quite strong ;-) --to say it went down a treat was an understatement--one of the new traders came round after and gave Bill her card and asked if he would email her the recipe-as she had never tasted cake as good as that!
All in all a great day was had by everyone--we met up with old friends and met some new ones!
Looking forward to tomorrow which will proberly be a bit quieter due to the world cup!
