Oil on Canvas

I've been working with oil on canvas ever since, as I child, I diligently ignored the outlines on my paint-by-numbers sets. (Oh, how I loved the little plastic cups of paint.) Soon my mother gave up and bought me my first set of oil paints and I never looked back. Now, many years later, my apartment overflows with canvases with oil (and sometimes acrylic) joyously splashed about.


I generally work in layers atop layers with no plan or goals in mind. I find ignoring what's on the canvas and working on top as if anew leads to wonderful things.
