Doing my Thing Day-Oil Painting?

Oil Painting?
Well that was a question, for sure.
I have only had one session of oil painting classes.

 This is not the one I have been working on in class.

This is an 8x10 I did at home.
I must admit it looks better on the computer than in real life.
 I am happy with the background, not happy with the tree.
But I am not sure I really enjoy oil painting.
It is a pretty messy job and takes forever to dry.
Well I will just paint until my oil paints run out,I only have small tubes, then I will decide.

Progress on the items for the summer picnic craft booth.

One red, white and blue clutch purse.

Clutch purse with phone case or whatever one wants to use it for.

I am now working on one from yellow and black bags now.
Now that I have the styles decided on, I should make good time now.
The picnic is in July.

Different scene in that painting, is that a palm tree overlooking a forest of pines? Oh yes, oil takes a long time to dry; I took a class at an RV rally in July and did not realize how long it would take to set, accustomed to working with acrylics.

I am passing along to you a blogger award, that I received; stop by my blog and copy the Versatile and then post and share. This is my first venture with such "awards" but as we had a dose of more wintry white today it was inside and time at the keyboard..amidst inside chores.

I enjoy oil painting, only I don't like to do it indoors, even with the odorless thinners, it still has an odor and I'd rather do it outside. The reason I like painting with oil because they blend so nicely, better than any other paints I've tried and oil (to me at least) is so forgiving...if you don't like something, just paint over ;-)...and I have a lot of paint overs ;-)

Oils are expensive, though, and that's why I just have some acrylics for now. If it turns out I get serious again, I might invest in some oils....isn't art fantastic?

Your crocheted clutch turned out cute!

Looks like you're having bundles of fun with all your wonderful creations and that's what it's all about!

Not long ago on my blog, I said something to the effect that at a certain age we can just go ahead and enjoy an activity without worrying too much about our expertise.

Oil painting is hard! I like your painting a lot and of course I love to crochet too, and your crocheted clutches are so cute! :-)

QMM, well I did add your link to the blog post award, I'm not sure how these things work. From Katen's I copied and pasted the picture of the award???

Nice clutches!

I like your painting. I think we're always more critical of our own works than others would be. Sometimes, it's all about the process rather than the outcome. You learn more each time you venture forth with the implements of your art.
