It’s been a long time since I’ve had the luxury to get out my oil paints and work on something new. About five months to be exact (ish).
It feels good, really good.
It took me a bit to get back into the new work – I had to repair a few paintings that had shifted and rubbed some layers off. From there it went pretty slow as I waited for the new layers to dry so I could hang them and start on a new idea. I went up to it with a little trepidation not sure how I would work on the canvas and if the paint would be forgiving. Turns out I needn’t have worried. It was smooth and easy like I’d never stopped.
So here I am expanding on my body of work again, trying some new things, and putting myself out there for shows (well, soon anyway). Who knows, maybe I can make a career out of this.
