Join me for my upcoming workshop
and art retreat at the beautiful
Hacienda Mosaico in April of 2017!
Vision & Touch: Dynamic Surfaces
in Mixed Media and Wax
April 23-29, 2017
Instructor: Lisa JonesMoore, BFA
Hacienda Mosaico, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Textures! Colors! Patterns and Shapes! These elements are everywhere, especially in the magnificent country of Mexico. Discover how to combine these rich “ingredients” to create beautiful works of art. Mexico is the land of intriguing old walls, windows, doors, signage and sidewalks. Crumbling, decaying flaking and rusting surfaces abound, combined with vibrant layers of colors and patterns.
Utilizing “photo-strolls”, sketching, mixed media and encaustic wax techniques, learn how to interpret the dynamic surfaces that surround you. We will employ “vision and touch” to create small “TacTILE” sample pieces, using at least a dozen mixed media/warm wax techniques. For your final project, you will design and assemble your beautiful pieces onto a larger substrate, or continue to explore the wonderful surfaces that inspire you, in the smaller format. All levels welcome! Beginner to experienced artists. Space is limited for this unique and beautiful art retreat in the heart of Puerto Vallarta.
* Included in the price:
- Lodging: 6 nights & 7 days in a beautiful double occupancy room, each a unique "work of art".
- Meals cooked by a personal chef: Sunday evening Welcome Reception, 6 full breakfasts & 5 lunches, plus a Saturday Departure Breakfast.

Returning to Oaxaca, Mexico, in late October!
I am "beyond thrilled" to be returning to Oaxaca, Mexico, for Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the dead) festivities in late October. In addition, I will be participating in an intensive art workshop involving night photography, collage and assemblage. I have not been to Oaxaca since 2007, and I still remember the rich sights and sounds during this very moving and sacred Mexican holiday, which really celebrates the "life" of departed loved ones, rather than "death". It is truly a very special time to be in Mexico. I highly recommend this if you have not yet experienced this magnificent celebration.
Working "feverishly" on new work for my upcoming Seattle show, A Sense of Place: Imagined and Transformed
Opening December 1, during the First Thursday Seattle Art Walk, I will be showing new work, along with gallerist and artist Lynn Hanson, at Lynn Hanson Gallery in Pioneer Square. Lynn will be "bringing to life" her feelings and "imaginings" of Swedish culture and folk art, while I (of course!) will be putting forth my deep feelings about and "transformative interpretations" of Mexico, her culture and people. The show will run through January, 2017. More details to follow!
A "sneak peek" at my new work for "A Sense of Place", opening December 1 at Lynn Hanson Gallery. This piece is entitled "Cruciform, Angel and Coca Cola", encaustic, metal, found objects, 16x16".
My newest work, titled "Allie Belle as a Young Woman", encaustic, mixed media, assemblage. Currently part of the ICON show at Lynn Hanson Gallery in Seattle, WA, through September 24, 2016.
If you live in the Greater Seattle area, be sure to join me for the ONLY encaustic open studio session around! Held at ArtWorks, in Edmonds, WA. $35 for 4 hours of open studio time, and you bring your supplies and ideas! Dates in 2016: Fridays, October 7 and December 9, from 1-5 pm, (sessions are usually held the first Friday of the month, contact me to confirm as dates do change). Contact me to register: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to see you at one of my shows or encaustic open studios, or better yet, in Mexico for my "Vision Touch" workshop in April 2017!
