Some oil paintings

Ok, so this is my first real blog post, so bear with me. I've had this blog for a while, but I didn't really know what to do with it. Lately, I've been itching to do some oil painting. It's hard to find the time to do a large painting, like I have done in the past.

A friend of mine showed me a group of painters that paint every day, usually small paintings, less than 8x10. I figured that would be easy enough to do. My last painting was 24x48 and took a couple of months to finish. Usually my ADD kicks in and I lose interest in the painting after that long.

So I've decided to paint when I have the time, not everyday, but more than every couple of years. Here are my first 3 paintings.

Clementine 4x5 oil on canvas

Linseed Oil Bottle 4x5 oil on canvas

Lemon 4x5 oil on canvas
