I'm on another of my happy visits out to Corralitos, CA to visit my sisters from another mother...Wendy Aikin and Judy Stabile...owners of Wax Works West
(note: horrible selfie below !!)
Can I just say...
I LUUUUUURVE these girls....
The Lenster and I arrived for our 51st Anniversary
Wendy always makes a wonderful 'to do"
Home made Matzah Ball soup and a chocolate cake from Gayles Bakery...perfect !
EATING.....a big event out here...we go into Soquel and lunch at The Crepe Place (yes...that's what it's called)
Your basic hop, skip and a jump into "Monkey Girl Beads"
AND NOW ON TO REPURPOSING STUFF....
Quick zip over to the Encaustic Wax studio to see the latest things the girls have been working on...
In case you have no idea what to do with those targets you've been shooting at......
a totally amazing wax on canvas done, as a collaborative, by Wendy & Judy which is 10 times more fabulous & detailed 'in person"
the gallery of the studio is downstairs....& full of the most inspiring encaustic waxy wonders.
YES....this has ALL been waxed
and, you say, what are those bags behind there...?
A waxed bag wall....filled with waxed treasures of course
I KNOW....I KNOW... I wanna go home and redecorate my whole house !
Wendys studio space is fascinating....here are glimpses
and Judy has done some amazing artwork with wax too
the gallery also features encaustic artwork from other notables
and Fanne Fernow
you MUST come and take one of their many classes
