A learning process.

When I first started painting in oils I learned  ( tried)  by copying the Masters and other artists. It was the only way I could . This is just such a painting, and by now who knows where it is, could be  in someones' garage, the Goodwill store .. don't know.. But I'm sure that just by doing it I learned something ... just like life,, we have to experience it .. do it,  and we always come away knowing one more thing .. 


  1. Looks like you learned a lot from the masters. This is excellent. Her hair and the flowing fabric are perfect!

    BTW: How's your kitchen table coming along?

  2. Wow, what a lucky garage! This is pretty incredible, the details and everything so perfect. People will soon learn by copying you!
    You don't really have to experience everything to know it. "You don't have to be a cow to know sweet from sour milk"! but, wow! I am impressed!

  3. Thanks and I've got to meet that cow! Yes, I still need to experience.
    My kitchen table is finished Chris. . all I did was some antiquing on top and it looks good.. thanks for asking.

  4. Hi again, just wanted to let you know I paint in oils mostly, but also acrylics. thanks for stopping by my blog.

  5. Wow! This is an amazing painting! Everything about it looks so real, especially the hair! There are some blogs which I visit and I am in awe from the moment it loads on to my screen - Yours is one of them :0)
