Renewal. Oil on panel. 2018

As some of you may already know, last fall I began teaching myself to paint with oils. It is something that I never thought that I would be able to do...they take so long to dry, I hated working with acrylics, painted for years in watercolor, didn't want colors to mix into mud, didn't want to have to start over....you know, all of the self imposed excuses why I WOULDN'T be able do it.

Anyway, I chilled out, watched a couple of Youtube tutorials, bought some Liquin (a brand name dryer) to speed up the process and after a little trial and error, to my surprise, started painting. And now it is all that I think about.

Many of these are small mementomori  type studies. I wanted to start out by doing simple skulls and such to get used to the medium and how the paint works. SURPRISE! I've already sold some, and have a gallery show lined up this summer (TBA).

Now that I have more than 1 or 2 decent paintings, I have made a new section on the site under Fine Art called "Oil Paintings" where you can see them. I'll update it regularly, when there is a piece that is worthy of adding. Thanks for looking!
