Trying to learn how to oil paint.

I have a lot of learning yet to do but the journey is fun and I feel lucky to have the time to play and the supplies to play with. I hope to get better with more study and practice, some day.


Finished this 12x16 pastel today. My own work, not a paint along.

On gray pastelmat with various soft pastels. Thank you for anyone who looks at this!


Seeing they are saying it isn't the cop guy....????

Did a painting with my own reference photo

Trying to incorporate what Iíve been learning.

8x10 on UArt dark 800 grit.

The paint alongs always turn out so much better than my own attempts to design a panting, LOL!


Did another paint along, this time on Patreon with Jacob Aguair who is an amazing teacher

As well as an amazing artist. Canít post the video because itís only on Patreon, sorry.


Did a paint along from a YouTube video

By Marla Baggetta.

Had lots of fun doing this.


This one got a "like" from Aline Ordman!

On facebook! She is one of the top pastel artists in the world, her work for example was used for the cover of last monthís Pastel Journal magazine.

I am leaving it as it is, if she likes it!

Wow, I am so thrilled and encouraged! Floating on air right now!

Wow, thank you! Actually 99% of the time I end up feeling like such a failure

Not only as an artist but it becomes a global, ďIve always been a failure, always will be a failure, why am I here on earth, is it for punishment?Ē

This painting I donít feel that sense of shame and failure so itís a relief.

Honestly I donít even know why I try to make art, itís usually such a frustrating thing for me and leaves me so blue most of the time. But I feel compelled to keep trying anyway,
