Frank's Island

Frank's Island
oil on canvas, 24x36"
sold

Every now and again I decide to dabble in oil. It is a nice break from watercolor but sometimes I just don't have the patience for it. Plus I will dabble a little too much with a piece trying to get it just right. 
With watercolor, you have to be done at a certain point or you ruin the painting or the paper.
Not so with oil.
Fortunately, Frank's Island sold to a wonderful person while it was still on the easel and before I had a chance to fiddle around with it for months on end.
I am happy to know it will be going to a good home.

Lucky you and the buyer. This is a wonderful work which deserved this.

This piece is breathtaking! Those rocks are so full of life and color, and everything just seems to embody such character in this scene! I think you should do more oils as well as your watercolors!

Asit, thank you. I am quite pleased with the results.

Katherine, you know just what to say! I think you have convinced me (and the sale helps) to paint more oils.

Leslie, I really love this. I had no idea you dabbled in oils. I could understand why the buyer snapped it up while it was still in the making.

Ina, sí que es muy bueno que lo vendió. Me dan ganas de pintar más.

Yes, Kathryn, I do occasionally dabble. Almost every oil I have done has sold. Makes me wonder why I don't do more. I guess I just love watercolor too much.
