Colorful hot wax and pigment creations from the workshop at Studio 245.  Part two of this workshop which focuses on the process will be a continuation of the processes we experienced with added elements of techniques to create dimension and sculptural effects.

Some very nice feedback from one of the artist participants. Thank you!

I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how much I loved your workshop today.  Thanks to your preparedness, extensive knowledge and patience, I left feeling thrilled & confident with my new encaustic skills.
You are so generous with your supplies – honestly, you must have lost money on the deal with all you provided!  And never once did I feel like I was asking a dumb question.
I would have been happy just sitting in your studio staring at your own incredible work, to tell you the truth, but you are so engaging that I had to dive in!
Thank you, again – I can’t wait for Part Two!

Linda Bigness is an internationally exhibited artist who maintains a gallery/studio in Syracuse, New York. Her work has been exhibited in several prestigious solo and group shows that have involved notable jurors such as art critic Clement Greenberg, Ivan Karp, director of OK Harris Gallery in NYC, and Tom Piche, director of the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art. In addition, Bigness’ large scale paintings are often selected and commissioned for corporate and residential clients, including the Turning Stone Resort, Merrill Lynch Corporation, Haylor, Freyer and Coon, and Bausch and Lomb. She continues to exhibit professionally at several venues with artwork featured frequently at the Nan Miller Gallery in Rochester, NY. Presently she is working on her latest book and exhibition about abstract art and the contemporary processes used by working artists today. Part of the research for this book is taken from the workshops she teaches and her oil painting and mixed media collage experience. For over 30 years Bigness has used her expertise to share with others the unique beauty and processes of her chosen medium through writing, teaching and professional exhibits. Her first book “Paint It, Tear It, Create It” offered the reader insight into visual abstract thinking through the process of collage into painting. She continues to explore the abstract through surface manipulation using encaustics and oil and is currently working on a new series, the “Journey Stones Revisited,” a reflection upon her extensive travels throughout the United States and Europe.
