Big thanks to Joe White for creating this video of my first solo art show ever!

Here is the rough version of the wax before melting and then the Japanese characters. I’ll take another close up of the same area after both so you can see the process. This beauty will be up for sale at my art show on September 21! #art #artshow #artwork #leahrichmondcooper #dendriaart #artisticprocess #encaustic #waxencaustic #landscape #thehills #september2013 #septemberevent #laevent #culvercity #exhibition

My first solo art show reception is on Saturday, September 21 at Sol Salon in Culver City, CA. Stop by after 7pm to see my art, have a glass of wine and a nibble. I’m also giving away a few of my Feng Shui mini canvases throughout the night to help energize and focus chi for a few lucky people. Looking forward to seeing my LA people! #art #leahrichmondcooper #exhibition #artshow #event #september2013 #laevent #septemberevent #love #lifeofmydreams

Almost there. Half of the face is done. That was a good push. Head banging seriously helps! Engage the laser beam… #art #artwork #leahrichmondcooper #inprogress #love #latenight #engagethelaserbeam #dethklok #dethmetal #deathmetal #sewing #embroidery #instamood #tafetta #sumi #calligraphy #japanese
