Hello Nolan and Dennis and thanks for this great initiative! 
I was busy looking for art courses online and while busy on fb a Paintbasket 'like' caught my eye, upon further investigation i found you guys!  I only recently started painting in oils which is a real pain as i know next to nothing about it except that it is far less of a pain than acrylics  :D  No, but honestly, i LOVE painting and can easily spend hours with colors and brushes and glue and linseed and have so much fun that time seizes to exist even though afterwards my painting looks like something i did in year 3!  I love the process maybe more than the end result (maybe because i have to...)  I would love to learn all there is to learn in your course so thank you so much!!   :clap:
