The weekend of June 18th thru the 20th, I attended an Oil & Cold Wax Workshop with Rebecca Crowell at the West Main Artist's Co-Op in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
What a fantastic experience it was for all involved.
Rebecca is a kind, gracious person who freely shares her techniques with her students. For three days, twelve artists of various backgrounds worked through layers and mixed colors and texturized panels.
Some participants shared previous artworks at lunch together and we exchanged tips in the studio as we worked on our panels to achieve the results we desired. We were all given the same information and watched the same demonstrations by Rebecca, yet each of us created unique artwork that reflects our personalities and styles.
Rebecca has a Ning Group for Cold Wax Painters to discuss experiments and possiblities. She also has a website where you can purchase her beautiful abstracts.
If you ever have the chance to participate in one of her workshops, please do so. You won't regret it. Although I may regret Rebecca seeing the title to this post! :-)
(Rebecca, you know I love you! I just couldn't resist...Thank you for everything. )
Love & Laughter,
