"Blue Jar With Snapdragons" 12" by 12" oil on stretched canvas

This one is a little bigger than the usual daily painting and it is done with oils, something I've only used a few times, many years ago. My usual media is acrylic. What a different experience... the paint is in constant fluid motion during the process. It's easier to change color decisions in acrylic because of the rapid drying time. Oil has a very long memory for whatever choice you make. It's harder to wipe off areas than I had remembered. I do like how the paint stays wet giving time to change the edges of things. This is going to take some experimention...I'm excited.
