Just got back from a 4 day artist’s retreat in Mineral Point, Wisconsin. 8 oil/cold wax painters, sharing a beautiful space at Shake Rag Alley, working side by side – what a great trip. Coincidentally there was a plein air competition happening the same weekend in Mineral Point so we were surrounded by art and artists all weekend. It was fabulous! Below are some abstract oil/cold wax paintings I was working on during those four days, in various stages of done-ness.
