My first Oil painting portrait !

                                                11 x 14  OIL

Wow.............. I have to thank Vern Schwarz  for this. He told me I should try Oil painting and offered to help me. Well I did not know how to start so I took this class with a talented young man called Kris Finch . I like him because he goes straight into the project "a la prima" I like shortcuts or very direct routes so this worked real well for me.
I have to say that I might have to add oil painting to my bag of pleasures.
This was done in 2 hours. I used only 4 colors (black, white, red, yellow)
Should I pursue oil painting ?

       This is for Irit's moleskin, her theme is places, where you live. Well I can't say I went very far  
     This is a wall outside my door that has flower pots and such.
I enjoyed doing this it became very relaxing.

Sunshine Award ( X's 2)

Wow ..... I've been missing for a little while and what happens, I get an award and 2 of them . I feel I can connect now with the participants of the Olympics with my 2 flowers and also with the Oscars and give my thank you'.
I humbly accept this from Cathie Tonkins and Silvia Williams I am very grateful for this , now the rules are you past it on to others but I can't seem to choose because in my eyes all my bloggy art friends are deserving.
So I will say anyone wanting this award that believes they deserve it, come and get it and link to me.
              Now I bow down...... thank you
