oil on gessoboard
It's my anniversary! My oil painting anniversary, that is.
One year ago today, I painted and posted my very first small painting in oils!
I've had the time of my life, and I've learned so, so much.
I haven't painted many flowers, or what I should say is, I haven't completed many paintings of flowers, because, well, they're tough!
These little lovelies came home with me yesterday thanks to my sweet mother-in-law, and after seeing the roundy vase I knew I had to try painting them. To take the pressure off, I put the focus on my favorite parts -- the vase and stems. I gotta say, I'm diggin' those stems.
Thanks for watching my progress this past year - I can't wait to see what the next one brings. :)
