While I learned lots of handy techniques this fall in oil painting, I don't think I finished a single painting! Hah! It was like cramming food only for nutrition, not for the sake of taste, which is something I, among other artists, am prone to. Not necessarily a flaw. So, here are a couple of the last paintings I worked on, the self portrait being the ending piece. I have come a long way since my August black and white still live. woot!
