This last week has been very busy finishing our bathroom renovation (stay tuned for before & afters)… yardwork… working… cleaning, and entertaining. There has not been much time for making art. Luckily all of those things make me feel happy and creative too!
This evening I found the time, and have finished one more, and started two others.
I choose to start my paintings in acrylic for several reasons but mainly because it dries faster than oil— therefore, I can work on several at a time— and get the jist of it painted before I get to the good stuff with my oil paints. I always end in oil because I love the depth of colour oil painting provides, I love the feel and consistency of oil, and even the smell better! It makes me happy.
