Remember that oil painting I blogged about oh, several months ago back when this blog was first getting started?
It’s almost ready!! YAY! Not that it took me several months to physically do it, so much as it took me several months to overcome all the weird associations I have about oil paint and canvas vs. my work and etc., blah. But now that it’s almost done, I’m really happy with it. So happy, in fact, that I’m buying two more 40 x 30 canvases tomorrow to start work on some more.
Now I just have to figure out how to photograph it so that the pic doesn’t look like crap. I tried to take a midway snapshot and… wow. Taking a snapshot of an oil painting is just a hugely different thing than putting a watercolor drawing on a scanner. The colors get all muddy and it just doesn’t work. Hmm. Anyway, I’ll figure it out somehow and post it as soon as I have a decent image.
