This past week just got away from me…..little time for art, not much blog reading, no blog writing….I’m attempting to make up for that today!
Actually, I have noticed that some people share artwork they have done in the past on their blogs. I’ve, for some reason, always thought the art I shared had to be fresh off the presses, so to speak!
So, for today I am taking you on a short trip down memory lane! Without admitting I am much over forty (haha), I will tell you that I started painting in oil paints in the 1970s when I first discovered tole (decorative) painting. Over the years, I taught classes and sold my work and switch from working in oils to using acrylic paints.
I just thought it might be fun to take a look back on some of the work I did yeeeeeeeaaaars ago!!!
It is kinda’ fun to go back and take a look at what you’ve done. Sometimes you see how much you’ve progressed other times….not so much.
These aren’t too bad! There, also, seems to be a resurgence of interest in this painting style.
What I do now is freer and less realistic but this was a great learning experience and we had a ton of fun doing it!
