Today I had a great meeting with a Hungarian lady, who wanted to learn encaustic. We had joyful hours together, made some good first pieces and finally I made a demo with MPO. She loved everything…Continue

I just wonder, if there is an archive, where we could read the former biographies of Michael Bossom, Verlie Murphy, etc. I just read Vera's biography and made me think, if the new members can read…Continue

Dear Webmaster, Admin, or Antonin! Please let me (us) tell how many files we can upload a day, and how much web-space we have all together?I have many images, but I don't want to overflow the…Continue

Old videos about me

Posted on October 5, 2013 at 1:00am 8 Comments

Look, what I found:

First a very old reportage about me, (in the earlier stage, practicing encaustic, still without iron, or stylus, made by the Austrian television, who visited my country-studio. Further more I was proud to be in a same film documentation about James Brown and different events, among others an exhibition about horses in an Austrian castle, where I also told some words...sorry: it is all in German, but you'll have the idea! I hope you can open it (with VLC…


High Hopes -WIP

This will be also a long run; I was working out this image in my mind since years. Now took the deep breath and started: first I made a pencil sketch, then I build up the whole image from my mind into a digital sketch, THEN I got further, fresh ideas, that you'll see at the first uploads. I'm still in the middle of nowhere; these are the most difficult phases for me. The first layer show only chaos and I'm always uncertain, if I would be able to finish it...but then again a deep breath and…

I started a really great challenge: to paint a half realistic, half surrealistic piece, using MPO.

I had an old, black and white photo-reference about myself, from age ca.6. I want to show the grey, boring, poor environment from the 50-ies in Hungary, when and where I was grown up. The right side of the painting I will paint ALL the nice dreams from a small girl. I had a problem with the composition: how I was thinking about it first, I was afraid: the painting will fall into two parts,…


New experiment with OMP

Posted on November 17, 2012 at 4:30pm 11 Comments

Well, this is still the first can I got from Antonin, still has the orange solvent in it. I set aside for awhile, but now I continued and worked better with the torch. The next photos show a development of my soap-bubbles, the surface is much better, as before and I'll fix it even more...hopefully for the right direction...LOL…

Thanks Mari for accepting my 'Friend' request. I looked at your new Website and was very surprised, in how many different styles you create your paintings, very impressive.

Thanks, Mari. I will get some uploaded soon.

Nice job Maria, 

I'm curious if it holds up over time since the layers are not fused together.

Thanks for your comments on my work Mari! 

Great work! I love your mixed media process. Looks like you're a lot like me , in that we like things that are out of the box (or maybe just difficult) lol!

Mari,thanks for your very nice comment about my Nantagna piece

At 10:28am on March 8, 2012, richard kushinsky said…

mari, thanks for liking my 'le tournesol',the very nature of the sunflower lends itself to encaustics, i love to do the textured works the best.


At 3:13am on March 2, 2012, Marjolein Blom said…

Hi Mari it's good to be here and hope I will get more time to go back to encaustic painting. But I'm afraid it will take some time, at the moment I'm busy with a study for regression and reincarnation therapist and doing research for my thesis which is very intense but also interesting. Big hug for you, Marjolein
