Artzilla Spotlight 

The live auction for our yearly painting event “Artzilla” is this Friday. Every year about 10 of us get together at the Arts in the Heart festival in Augusta, GA and paint live. It’s fun to interact with the public and watch the creative process in action. 

This year we had the opportunity to add some new blood and it was my pleasure to get to know Ellie Benson of Cargo Collective. Her abstract encaustic work is expressive and fun. Here’s a shot of the large piece she created during the event. It reminds me very much of this Givenchy slip dress I’ve been obsessing over from the SS2017 ready to wear collection. I’ve got rusty puddles on the brain this fall:-) -Staci
