About this Collection
This is one of many small oil paintings in my series titled ‘Women’. They each represent family, friends and other women who bring inspiration in our daily lives. This project started out as a study for future color palettes for my larger paintings and emerged as little gems. At first when it came time to name each piece, I realized that each had their own personalities and reminded me of individuals that have touched my life in some way.
My oil medium: I use only environmentally safe water-soluble oil paints. These vegetable drying oils have been restructured in water-soluble oils which eliminate yellowing as in traditional oils. It also eliminates the use for turpentine, mineral spirits or other harmful solvents. This is a step that I have taken toward an environmentally safe planet. These beautiful oils will last for generations.
