|'Blue Skies Smiling' 30x40 oil on linen ©Karen Margulis sold|
I thoroughly enjoyed painting with oils. I loved the textures I could achieve and I love pushing the paint around with a brush. My appetite was wet! This painting is meaningful for me because it is not only the largest I have ever painted it was an oil painting! I was happy that I was comfortable enough with this new medium to tackle a large painting.
I finished the year with a plein air oil workshop with Marc Hanson. The flu and travel have not allowed me to get into the studio to practice what I learned so you can be sure that oils will be high on my goal list for 2013.
