And Then There Were Oils
I had been happily playing around with my acrylic paints last week when a friend of mine called to ask if I wanted her oil paints as she just didn't have the time or desire to use them anymore. Being a hoarder of all materials pertaining to art, I of course said yes. Well let me tell you ......... oils are just wonderful. Unlike acrylics they simply glide onto the canvas......just like butter and the colours...... oh don't get me started. It is simply a feast for the eyes.
So once again I find myself preoccupied with something other than my own work..... but am I having fun.
I have on more than one occasion glanced over and seen the piece I am halfway through completing and then I feel guilty because I know I need to get to it. I feel as if I am in this wildly exciting period where I've actually taken time to experiment. I'm figuring that everything I'm learning right now will in some round about way contribute to my own art when I get back to it.
