#46 "Church Lady", oil, 20" x 16"
And so...it is finished....at least for now. My first portrait in oil paint. I have never felt particularly interested in either portraits or oil paint! Never say never. So my friend and colleague, Joanne, and I have decided to set up some more sittings and keep practicing with oil paints. I find myself wondering what I really want to paint with oil. Trucks? Boats? Interiors? Chairs? All familiar subject matter for me. While I'm figuring that out I will learn more by reading, looking and doing more portraits. At least you won't have to see this one again for awhile. The Ray for the Day is "Church Lady."
