Keeping on keeping on...


I started oil painting in February. This is something I hadn't done in years...I completed a few chickens and told myself I woudl go back to the same old, same old (watercolor/mixed media) etc...

But suddenly I am enjoying this oil painting thing..I am loving the exploration of a new medium...something "clicked" in a good way. For some reason, oil paintin is freeing...(I'm not as much of a perfectionist in this media perhaps)...

If anyone out there in cyberspace is contemplating trying an new artistic medium I would highly recommend it! It can be both rewarding, freeing...and lead to new ideas..and stuff....
