October Meeting

On October 14th from 7-9, Jeanette Jensen will demo her techniques using oil to paint on glass, but she says other media work too.  She has a technique she developed that she calls twin stroke.  The oils need to be mixed to a certain viscosity that will apply to any medium.  Jeannette uses old window frames and creates interesting and beautiful artwork.
