"Thank you for putting together this comprehensive course on Cold Wax and Oils for Beginners. I feel I now have an excellent foundation with which to move ahead and explore this exciting medium.
I especially appreciated and admired your generosity and patience. You were generous with your knowledge and presented it with clear, precise and detailed descriptions. And, you patiently and thoroughly covered each question so all could understand down to the last detail. Your positive energy and caring make you an excellent teacher. I admire all you have done putting your valuable knowledge together in a package to make it easier for us to learn in an efficient way. My sincere thanks!"
"Your CW/Oil Workshop was outstanding. You were very organized and thoroughly explained the why’s and how’s of CW/Oil paintings. While I have been using this painting technique for a few months, I learned so much. Thank you for taking the time to prepare for and teach such a comprehensive Workshop."
"This workshop was an amazing learning experience. Your clarity in explaining the technical aspects of using cold wax gave me the confidence to jump in. I am so grateful to be able to go back to the videos to remind me of all your precious tips. Thank you for offering so much information from your many years of knowledge. You are saving me so much precious time that would have been wasted trying to figure technical skills on my own."
