Thumbs up The Oil Spiel

You'll find a new feature on the Oil Pastel Society's website! The newsletter for the Society will be going live as a blog. If you have news that you'd like to share, please contact Pat Isaac (she's the moderator for the Oil Pastel forum). She is the editor for the blog and will be updating it as we get information from the members.

The old Oil Spiel will have one more issue for November/December, 2010, featuring a demo for using oil pastels plein air! An announcement about a new Signature Member! and a heart warming story from one of our members.

If you are a member of Facebook, check out the newest group for Oil Pastels! There is a link to the group on the Society's front page also!

You can also post information here in the Society forum for the Spiel!

Thanks everyone....and happy painting!

Re: The Oil Spiel

Thanks for the information, Carly.

I think it is also impoirtant to point out that the "Oil Spiel" blog does not mean the death of content such as demonstrations, artust profiles, technical articles, etc.

Taking the OS live as a blog has presented us with a variety of options and opportunities to explore new ways of delivering this other types of content to our members. We want them to know that we are working behind the scenes to explore and develop substantive content delivery of all types to the members in the comming year. We hope to continue to provide traditional content such as online articles, and even explore the possiblity of new types of delivery of content using as much of the newer web technology, including video, as we are able with our limited time and resources.

I think this can be viewed as an exciting time to be involved with the OPS and Oil Pastels, whether it is your primary medium or not!

Thanks again for the info and thanks to Pat Isaac for the idea and implementing it. This has been an excellent solution to solve a longstanding problem of trying to deliver time-sensitive information to our members as quickly as possible but still explore avenues of providing more in depth articles and other forms of content.to the membership.

Members' ideas and help are , as as always, appreciated and taken seriously.
