Oil Paint


I really like to paint. I think I may have mentioned this before. LOVE IT! But for the last three years I've basically done just about nothin'. When we lived in Ohio the hunny was just so busy with work he didn't have a lot of time and I didn't want to ask him to sacrifice his little bit of free time so I could paint, so I didn't. I've missed it, since the move (and a new job--hooray) he has a lot more time and I've started painting again. It helps that my dad teaches a painting class so that gives me a good venue to work at away from home! It's been so long though that I thought I'd warm up my skills by copying this painting. It's starting alright. For 4 hours of work, I'd say it's coming along nicely. Still a long way to go though!


pardon the glare. I should have waited until I had some natural light to take pictures :) (But then it wouldn't have happened).
