Oil Painting




I was working on some new oil paintings and thought I would post this one up. This was my favorites and I think it's because I did it in two hours. My goal was to stay loose and not beat myself up. I don't work with oils much but I am working on a body of new work now so that I can have a show someday.

Thanks for the comments. I will have to post up some of my other paintings. As artists we are our worst critic so sometimes I hesitate to even bring some images to the forefront because I see my flaws. I appreciate the encouraging words.
