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