What are your favorite artistic mediums?

We work with mild steel to form decorative wall art. Joe works with a mastic and beeswax medium in my oil paints. The Mastic gives the oils a permanent "just painted/still wet" sheen that lasts longer than turps (which has a tendency to evaporate and leave a dry and flakey looking surface to the painting) and the beeswax provides the oils a suppleness that inhibits cracking and aging.

Did you join this group primarily to grow as an artist and/or promote your work? Or as a social outlet to meet other artists and creative minded folks?

Both. An artist continually grows with every experience, exposure and personal contacts.

Introduction

Cindy & Joe McDonnell. Metal artisans and oil painter. We collaborate on decorative wall pieces. Joe is recently retired and looking forward to painting.
