Today I decided to finish my oil painting of Apple Blossoms. The image size is 20"x28" and framed it is 21 1/2" x 29 1/2". I really am happy with this painting. I have another painting that I really finished and that is a tree at Bryce Canyon, an oil, Image size 20" x 28", framed size 21 1/2" x 29 1/2". Both paintings are $900 each. It feels good to finish these two paintings. I need to concentrate on the scarves but this weekend I didn't paint my daily paintings and I missed doing that so much. So this morning before anything else I finished a 5"x5"oil Pear on Purple. As soon as it is dry enough I will post it.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I went to college when I was 37 years old. I loved it so much, I was a sponge and absorbed anything and everything about art. I started out wanting to be a portrait artist but ended up using pencil and colored pencils. I made quite a name for myself with my drawings. I won many awards. When I needed a break from that I went into oil sticks and just loved them and again did very well with awards. I finally went back to my oils but always felt frustrated with them I wanted to be free from all constraints, I am now working in acrylics and loving them. So now the sky is the limit. I just want to go and do everything I feel and want to express.
