Back in the day
Back in the day...I learned how to paint with oils. From 1987 to 2000 I painted exclusively with oils and most like my oils better than my watercolors. Most of my oils are hanging up in someones home but I still have some of my, "not so great ones" hanging around the house. For those artists that told me why don't you paint in oils. I can..I ahve "been there and done that" but watercolors free my soul...where oils cause too many problems for me, mainly my cat who walked all over the floor with "wet" feet and my kids who played finger painting with my art. So one day I may go back to iols, and honestly after trying watercolors, I must admit oils is much easier..artists who have went both ways know what I am talking about. Anyway here are some of my "not so great" oils I have left hanging around.
