About the Event

Who knew, after years of painting only representational subjects, would I ever create abstract paintings and love it? This totally new one-day Workshop offering is for all those who want to learn more about using cold wax and oil, while making gorgeous abstract works of art in this process. In only one day, you will walk away with several small paintings and I promise, you will have so much fun with this medium. Join me on my newest adventure. I know you will have a blast, like I have, using this amazing process in a fabulous abstract way!
