Finally finished my first truly original oil painting. By that I mean I didn't do it from a picture, I set up the still life myself. Well, I did have to consult some pictures of forsythia on the internet. The only thing available to paint from life around here is snow and bare trees. I also don't want to paint en plein air in 18 degree weather. The next thing I want to do is a painting to go in my booth. My table covers are purple so maybe lilacs and silver jewelry?
I started my jewelry making journey in 2006 and it quickly took over my spare room and spread out into the living room. I was able to retire from my civil service job in August 2008 and I'm now able to focus on it full time.
