Carol Steinberg led our very enjoyable May meeting and demonstration. Our guest demonstrator was Cynthia McCallister. Although new to our area, her art has already made an impact. Cynthia's specialty is painting waiters in various positions based on croppings of photos taken at some of the best Parisian restaurants. The audience was enthralled by her use of water soluble oil paints. It doesn't seem possible, but these oil paints are miscible in both water and linseed oil. She promised easy water cleanup and a non-toxic benefit. Thanks, Cynthia. We look forward to seeing more of her work.
