Early adventures in water-mixable oil

My first oil painting. This was done on a scrap wood panel.

I took a painting class at community college to earn transferable credits. To be completely honest, I went into that class not looking forward to it because I didn't like painting. But the laid-back nature of this class, and introduction to different paint materials, made me fall in love with painting.

The picture above was my first true exploration into oil paint. From there, I was hungry for more!

I wanted to experiment with all the different colors available. I borrowed the paint that was in the studio, trying them out one by one. It was a very fun and memorable experience. Sadly, I no longer have either of these paintings as I gave them away.

Succulent fairy

I modeled this after the succulent in the kitchen. We even have the fairy (although she doesn't look as kawaii desu IRL)
