new beginnings

I love acrylic paint.  Like LOVE it.  It's fast drying time, which many see as a downfall of the medium, lets me work at a speed that I'm comfortable with.  I feel like I can literally get inside of the painting.  The flexibility of the paints and mediums is so. so. wonderful.  The saturated colors are delicious.  Here's what, though, I am making a concerted effort to switch to oil paints for a little while.  Push myself out of my comfort zone a bit.  I know acrylics up and down.  Oil paints and I are old friends, but have a lot of catching up to do.  So far, I'm smitten.  Their rich, deep tones and buttery strokes are incredible.
