LIZ STUBBS PHOTOGRAPHY

Celebrating Moments of Wonder:

Liz Stubbs specializes in a marketing series for artists, (portraits, openings, etc).

She is based in Atlanta but will travel to clients.

“Liz Stubbs photographed my first solo art show and captured exactly what I’d envisioned, in her masterful shots. I met Liz in an art class almost a decade ago. Her photography skills are beyond reproach and her background in art makes each shot a masterpiece of light and expression.

I was graced with more comments/responses than I’ve ever received on a post after showcasing her candids of my interaction with guests at the exhibit. One viewer wrote under a particularly entrancing photo, “I wish there was a LOVE button (instead of ‘like’) on this photo!” I totally agree.

I LOVE Liz’s fly-on-the-wall style that allowed me to “do my thing” without noticing her presence, then gasp at the beauty of her candid shots of meaningful interactions with my guests as they inquired about the paintings or offered me a congratulatory hug or kiss. The light was perfect…faces, paintings, candles and even my business cards! I felt the gallery radiating positive energy and emanating a powerful glow, but I never imagined that it could be captured in photographs. Liz achieved it and I will hire her for every special occasion in my life. Thank you, Liz!” -Penny Treese

AUG 9~SPRUILL: IRONING ON WATERCOLOR PAPER AND PANEL WITH ENCAUSTIC WAX

Spruill Center for the Arts Registration for Encaustic Workshops Open in Dunwoody, GA

Sunday, August 9th, 12:30 pm until 5:30 pm

Instructor: Penny Treese

Ironing as an encaustic wax painting technique results in a unique and beautiful experience for the artist and the viewer. Surfaces can be created to emulate coral-thick and textural, or thin layers of pigmented, natural, unbleached beeswax can be fused to watercolor paper or wood surfaces revealing subtle, transparent layers of color that seem to pulsate and move before the eyes of the beholder. In this encaustic workshop, learn the method of ironing wax to develop what Penny calls, “Selfscapes,” representations of sky, sea, ground, or simple yet stunning abstract fields of luscious color. You will leave this workshop with several encaustic wax masterpieces on paper and wooden substrates. While moving gracefully with the flow of the molten wax under the hot iron, you may find yourself swimming within serene waves, floating amongst translucent clouds and experiencing a healing that is born from the freedom of creating abstract beauty without restriction.

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED.
