field trip

My friend Jen Goldfinger is a fine artist and a children's book writer / illustrator.  She also runs her home outside of Boston with her husband Michael, two daughters and their sweet doodle-dog Lila.  Talk about busy and multi talented!  These are two of her triptychs that hang in her home.

Jen has been working with encaustic materials for a few years and I wanted to see her set up.  I do love looking at other peoples work spaces! Jen's studio in Arlington is in an old brick building, the space is long and narrow but flooded with light from the far window.

Her space is divided into two work areas. The far end is for the painting with that nice restaurant type fan installed to vent the fumes from the heating/burning in of the encaustic materials.

Somewhere in the middle of the room, the space shifts to her work as an author illustrator.

Jen recently up a blog where she has begun writing about her children's book illustrations, and she was just signed to Writer's House!
Congratulations, Jen!
