|Oil on Canvas|
The last time I painted a still life in oils was at BYU in 1983. It was an "Oil Painting For Non Majors" class and I failed it. It was the only class I've ever had less than a "B" in at BYU or at Kent State's nursing school...I failed it because I just stopped going. I was pregnant with my second child. (Christiane) Michael was applying for Medical School and my class was in the evening...when I had morning sickness (actually evening sickness). The oil paints just aggravated my nausea and I gave up. Ironic that after all that I have done in my life, that I am back to beginnings in oil, starting over. But this time, I'm not planning to fail:) I'm accepting this as what it is...a one sitting painting, a first in a long time...and one that has lots of room for improvement. I have to start somewhere.
