Oil on Board
I have been longing to paint glass for a while, and while I was fighting to open these little jars, I realized they would give me the perfect opportunity. I still have not managed to get them opened. They are filled with oils that I paint with but they have been sealed for over a week and have sealed themselves shut. I love how the light made the oils glow. The subject matter often makes me feel like a mad scientist. I use combinations of oil and paints and I try out new products and methods that appeal to me but while I mix all these things I never measure them or write them down. I experiment through feel. I may just be the messiest and most unorganized scientist.
