Seven months in La Jolla has proven to be lucky.

"Ditch Plains" encaustic 9 x 11 inches…
A few summers ago at Golden Eagle Art Supply in East Hampton, NY, Letty noticed a posting for an encaustic workshop. She immediately signed up for a private lesson. "I was really looking for something to break me out of my comfort zone. I love working with oils, but knew the spontaneity of working with wax would be good for me and my current work. It has pushed me to learn to work faster and open myself up even more to the unknown," says Nowak, "I definitely think my encaustic work has influenced my current Faces." The new encaustics are currently on display at the Outeast Gallery in Montauk, NY.
