It has been a while since I updated this blog and I have so much to share, but for today I thought I would share my first finished oil painting. I can see things I want to go back and tweak on this even now, but need to move on. I have been taking oil painting for about 6 weeks now but the first 4 weeks were spent making the paints (N9-N0)...whew! What a job that is! But it is nice now to have all the different variations of black and white ready at your fingertips when you are painting. This is the most relaxing medium I've worked with (I have done clay, paper, acrylic, mixed media...this one is definitely one to go to when stressed!!).
With all the illustrating I do for my wonderful 'day job' (Inspired Stamps), it is an absolute treat to get to do something artistic that is so relaxing on the side.
Have a great weekend and May God bless your ART...and your Heart!
