Another painting

actual size

This oil painting is also going to Chicago. I think it will make a good contrast to the floral still life.
It measures 3" x 2.5"

Oil painting

I've been wanting to do some oil paintings. It started a while back when I needed to clean out and move all my paints to a more easily accessible location. (Everything had been crammed in a small toolbox for 35 years!) I work mainly in acrylic, painting the wood animals and, well, everything that is not stained is painted in acrylic. Much to my surprise, my oils were all still good! I did buy a new set over the summer too. So  here is a floral still life, the result of many hours of work. 

The painting measures 2" x 3". I am sending some paintings and other pieces to Chicago. My work will be on th IGMA Gallery of the Guild table.
