A Gift of Self / Oil Painting


 

Welcome back to KDOI Podcasting, Season 2 Ep 5 Oil Painting project. This is probably the most personalized project you will do in this season. It is is the most difficult because you have to wait for the paint to dry between steps.

I am a self taught painter, I have only taken elementary painting classes and recently I took a “class” about 1.5 years ago where the teacher was around providing paint, brushed and tools to paint. We had to provide the inspiration and the canvas. I decided this would be a great opportunity to give a gift to my wife for Xmas so I took a picture of our trip to Paris where we kissed in front of the I Love You Wall and I dove into the class. It took 3 sessions of 2 hours each and walla, I had the best Xmas present ever, an attempt to recreate that  moment in time.

Also depending on how detailed you want to be they can be done fairly quickly.
