San Dieguito Park

This was my first assignment from my first oil painting class.  Other firsts: painting trees without compulsively painting each and every leaf and first try at water reflections.  I added my signature hoping that would be a definite  finishing point, then proceeded to tweek something else.  I need instruction on how to sign a painting with a paintbrush.  Whew.  Oh, and I clearly wasn't thinking when I chose a 1.5" gallery wrapped canvas.  I am more familiar with acrylic paints which dry so quickly.  I kept forgetting the four sides and had to go back to fill in which stayed wet for days.  Every time I moved, set down or touched the artwork it caused issues.  Let's just say, there is evidence around the house.  Oh well, it's been a huge learning curve, but a huge accomplishment, as well.

    I was "touching up" an oil painting when I was back in college. I'd laid it out on newspaper on my parent's living room floor when, oops! I realized that I'd propped the painting on the carpet and there was a long green paint streak there for MANY years ;)
