It felt a lot like digital painting, off of the screen and onto a canvas. The buttery consistency and malleability of oil paint made me completely fall in love with it. I started with artworks of foods and cute “bite size” paintings on 6×6 primed paper until I moved into larger canvases.
Since I reevaluate my creative goals, and listened more to what my artistic self truly wanted, and truly wanted to create, I have felt a great happiness and freedom, and the satisfaction of expressing myself. Opening myself to new aesthetics and visual ideas has been challenging, but wholly rewarding.
