new site for oil and wax discussion
I've been thinking for quite awhile about starting an online discussion group for people who have taken my Oil and Wax workshops. Most people I've worked with seem eager to carry the ideas forward in their own studios after the class ends, and there is a desire for feedback and continued sharing of information. There's also a social factor--all the people who have taken the class, regardless of where they did so, have a lot in common with each other and I figured they would enjoy "meeting ." A big Oil and Wax party, online!
So--yesterday I signed on with Ning.com and created a site called Oil and Wax: Exploring Cold Wax Painting Techniques.
The response has been wonderful, with 25 members and growing, and quite a few posts already. Members include past workshop participants, a few people who are anticipating a workshop in their future, and a few more who are just interested. Membership is open to anyone who is curious about the use of cold wax with oils.
