I have always loved the look that oil paints give. They have this warmth and depth that I haven’t observed in any other painting medium. I have always been too intimidated by the process. The intimidation stopped a few weeks ago. Well, lots of practice is definitely necessary-no question, but I am having a blast. Plus, oils give me lots of time to fix some of my problems. The practice must go on. I hope you come to witness some progress.
I love small precious things. There something so intimate about having to get close to something in order to see it. If I get to set it on my hands, it is even better. I also love details--I think that is part of the "getting close" thing also. These paintings are meant to go on pendants.
