The Genie is Out of the Bottle!

Well, I opened up my oil paints and practiced brushstrokes this afternoon. Very fun!!

Two hours went by so quickly (which never happened when I wrote)! Literally – I went to switch the clothes from washer to dryer at 1:30 p.m. … the next time I looked at the clock, it was 2:30. I absolutely lost track of time.

The first “painting” is practicing brush strokes. The second “painting” is also practice… kind of. The last practice brush stroke was to use the palette knife, which I really love. So, the second painting was to explore the palette knife application a little more, using some of my favorite shades of blue. I want to explore it even more. Also, I’d really like to explore using funky implements (forks, bottle brushes, etc) as ways to apply paint onto canvas. So happy about this!
