I spent yesterday getting my studio semi-organized and today when I started squeezing paints out the the tube - oh my gosh. How I have missed the smell of oils. And Gamsol!
Oil painting has such a different vibe than acrylics. So much oomph. So much luminosity.
I decided to start off with a wildflower meadow because that subject is my favorite to paint. There is so much freedom in painting wild, chaotic masses of flowers.
I have so many exciting things I want to do this year. I'm in the process of making a bucket list for 2015 and I know I'm going to go overboard. But hey, if you don't dream big - why dream?
