UPDATE: “Butterflies” SOLD in Auction for the Nancy Cole Care Fund

Please consider viewing the listing on EBay for this painting we have donated for this cause, and consider making a donation to our former student, also the owner of the lovely Southern Sweets Bakery.

*UPDATE: BIDDING IS NOW CLOSED FOR OUR PAINTING BUT DONATIONS STILL APPRECIATED*

From Penny Treese and Kim McGill Stuart:

“We would like to invite you to help Nancy Cole during this difficult time by making a donation to help with the cost of her home care. Last year cancer cells were found in Nancy’s liver tissue, and despite treatment, she continued to deteriorate. Treatment was halted this year, and Nancy was transferred home where she’s receiving constant care.

Nancy, and her husband, were brief art students of ours, her energy made such an impact on us. Her excitement and creativity was moving. It was a joy having her in our class and pleasure meeting her and her husband.”

Thank you sincerely for any help that can be given.
Here are pictures and close-ups of the painting we collaborated on (click to enlarge):

FAVS! Binder Art is a great place to buy encuastic wax supplies

Check it out:  Binders Art Supply – www.bindersart.com

Binders Art Supplies and Frames is my favorite place to buy supplies, specifically encaustic supplies and frames. The owner, Howard Krinsky, built the business with a determination and mission to give back as well as to be a part of the art communities where their business resides.

Binders gives a significant discount to students and art teachers. He will gladly pre-order supplies for artists to pick up if they aren't available at the store.

Check out their encaustic lines which include Encaustikos and R & F, leaders in encaustic supplies.

Look to Binders for pigment sticks and blocks, wax, gesso, brushes, scrapers, panels and cradles, hot palettes, starter kits, books and much more.
