A little bit of color.. “Daylight”

“Daylight” Oil on 24″ X 24″ canvas.

This is a piece I did as a gift when I was about 15 years old. It wasn’t a school project, but something I worked on during my spare time. It took months to complete. Seeing it again makes me miss painting. I feel like if I went back, it’d be like starting at square 1. But boy, oh boy, do I love color!

Before I got back into drawing (last Sept.), my favorite medium was oil. Back in the day (aka High School, lol) I used to paint ALOT. However, after I graduated, I kinda gave up on art altogether. I was so busy, balancing college/work/social life left me with no spare time for my passion.  I tried oil a couple years ago but having 2 young kids, oil is messy and stains everything, and I don’t have any room in my house nor a studio to go paint. And we may or may not have had an incident where my 2 year old got into my oils and stained carpets, couches and clothes. 😉 That is why I draw with pencil/graphite. Less mess. But as the kids get older and my love for art & drawing keeps getting deeper, I would really love to revisit the oils.

Right now I’m working on a drawing that has to do with ballroom dancing 🙂 Hopefully it’ll be finished within a week!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

  1. ooow awesome… lovely colors 🙂

  2. it looks amazing (I hope you reunite with your passion -w-)

  3. So beautiful ! Love the colors !

  4. Aaargh! Same frustration, but watercolor was more my choice in the past. Unless you have a studio, the tools required for working with color can either be wrongly deployed or destroyed by those precious little ones. Mine are getting a little older by now – so maybe one day soon I will escape my world of Black and White.

    You can get such vibrant colors and texture with oils. A very nice painting! 🙂

  5. That’s lovely – the colors go so well together! Especially the red and green.

  6. I love it 🙂 your colors are amazing!
