Crafts:: Oil Paintings

Many moons ago I did some oil paintings while taking a class. The teacher had us do a still life first, as evidenced by the "duck" painting, as well as copy greeting cards or magazine ads. It was enjoyable at the time but something I was unable to pursue at home with three small children underfoot. Now that I presumably have the time, I really should think about getting out the paint and brushes again but there still never seems to be enough time....


I am linking to many of these BLOG PARTIES

Those are really good. I especially like the one of the flowers in front of the window. You should pick it up again when you have the time.

I really like the one with the apples and copper kettle, you got the patina and shine just right! You have a good start and you have talent. I love to paint, I don't do it nearly enough. Found you on Metamorphosis Monday.

The vase of flowers near the window is wonderful! I've always wished I could paint, but that is one crafty skill I am definitely without. Thanks for linking up to Craftastic Monday!

Colleen @ MuralMaker&More said...

I love all of them! I tried oils a couple of times, but have stuck with acrylics. I hope you start painting again. I started because it relaxed me while I had 3 teenage boys. Now I do it just for me!
