ORIGINAL OIL PAINTINGS
When I was about 12 years old my senior neighbor across the street had a garage sale. Amongst all the old treasures she had laying out in her garage was an old wooden box with little tubes of oil paints. I can still remember the smell when I opened it! I scrounged up a few dollars and bought it...along with a stack of Harlequin romance novels.
Soon after my mom signed me up for an oil painting class. It was in the back of a house paint store. The instructor and everyone in the class was a senior woman. I was very nervous and intimidated and of course I stuck out like a sore thumb. We painted landscapes and I really enjoyed the class.
I also loved visiting my grandmother in her assisted living apartments, where she also took oil paintings classes. I still have a few of her paintings hanging in my home. It was from these women, that I first dipped my toe into the earthy rich pigments. I tried other paints over the years, I took long breaks from painting...but I always came back to oil paints. I love the smell of the paints, the transparency, the smoothness with which they blend, and the way the light dances between the layers.
All oil paintings are painted on cotton canvas that I textured myself with a heavy-bodied gesso and each canvas has a 1.5 inch wood frame.
Oil paintings take extra care in packing and shipping. I will cover the cost of having each oil painting professionally packed and secured in wooden crates. You will need to cover the cost of shipping.Contact me to discuss shipping & delivery.
All original art includes a signed Certificate of Authenticity by me, the artist.
