Oil Painting Lessons… Or A Tiger Lily In My Tank

Shelley Newman, my art teacher and owner of Wind Water Trees, is very brave to teach me oil painting. I am such a noob!

Almost finished!

When I was a younger, I said “I will never try oil painting. It’s too messy. Yada, Yada. Now watercolour, I can get my head around. It’s so civilized.” Yeah… I know. I also said, I would never use a computer or live in Toronto… So small minded.

These days, all I can think about is mooching oil paint onto canvas in big gobs.
