The artists interviewed included John Griefen, an artist and collaborator with Sam and Leonard at Bocour and one of our first customers; Patrick Fiore, an accomplished artist and a studio arts professor who was one of the first to try out the early versions of OPEN; Barbara Dickerson, an incredibly courageous teacher who allowed us to bring the OPEN Acrylics to her oil painting portrait class; and lastly, Jamie Grossman, a plein air painter who has been incredibly generous in sharing a great deal of feedback about the possibilities with OPEN Acrylics.
Mark Golden with Barbara Dickerson, Mark Golden: Barbara, can you tell me about the way you work and the materials you work with? Barbara Dickerson: Generally I use oil paints. I have used acrylics in the past but sometimes I incorporate acrylics with the oil paint and use it as an undercoat but most of the time I use oil. Mark: And why oil? Barbara: Because I like the blending quality and richness of them. In the past and occasionally I have painted a whole painting in acrylic. Barbara: When I first tried it, I was amazed at the ability to blend it for as long as we could. Barbara: I am extremely impressed with it. Barbara: I still have a little bit of a problem learning how to control it. Barbara: I have trouble getting the kind of look I want to get with a portrait as opposed to the kind of look I can get with oil paints. Barbara: Yes, it's really different. Barbara: Right. Barbara: As a teacher, I would not present this medium as a medium that's like other mediums and that would include acrylic and oils. Barbara: Yes, because it gives them tremendous control over it and they can use a little bit of the Thinner or they can use a lot of the Thinner. It's great for them to play with it that way - to experiment. Barbara Dickerson, Barbara Dickerson, "Antiques and Flowers", 2008, 12" x 12", oil Barbara: We're using sable brushes. Barbara: That has been very easy. Barbara: Yes, it was. It was plenty of colors. We could mix everything and get what we needed. Mark: Barbara, did you get to use the new Gel Medium or the Acrylic Medium as opposed to Thinner? Barbara: I did use both. Barbara: The Thinner made it much more controllable. Mark: Right. Barbara: It covered the canvas better, it blended better. Barbara: Yes, hours. Barbara: My students keep their glass palettes in a plastic box with a lid. Barbara: I think that somebody who starts using this paint and continues using and really masters the paint and experiments with it, will come out with a beautiful look that you can't get with any other paint. Mark: Uh-huh. Barbara: I encourage my students to do that, try blending with it. Barbara: It becomes stickier. Barbara: Dry. Right. Barbara: Right, exactly, and that would be something that would be a lot of fun I think for an experienced artist to really master this new medium. Barbara Dickerson's art career evolved into a fulltime livelihood in 1985. This career course was a surprise since her degree was in Education. After having her three children, Barbara started oil painting for fun and taking lessons in Houston, learning Dalhart Windberg's (the artist of Texas) beautiful Flemish Old Master's techniques and palette. After five years of success with art shows, she made her living doing shows for the next twelve years. Finally, Barbara decided to start a new business by teaching her secrets to the public. Barbara blended her knowledge of teaching basic fundamentals to her new students in the form of fine arts on canvas. Barbara now has a thriving business teaching oil painting. Barbara's art education was expanded by taking numerous workshops from well known artists around the United States. For the past five years, Barbara has been an ongoing student of Dalhart Windberg. Dalhart was so impressed with Barbara's skill and teaching status that he made two rare visits to Georgia to teach a week long workshop to her students.
