Painting by Paul Ferney

This week I’m starting a 3-month class on oil painting.

Dun dun dun.

It’s been a goal of mine for quite some time to take an art class, but the watercolor class I wanted was canceled. So I opted for the oil class – totally out of my comfort zone. I’ve painted with acrylics and watercolors, but I’ve never touched oils. They’ve always intimidated me for some reason. But I’m positively pumped to try them. Look at these beauties!

After finding these gorgeous creations, I think I’ve found a new love in oils. I’m practically chomping at the bit to try them for myself.

Is there anything you’ve been reluctant to try because it’s out of your comfort zone? I hope this encourages you to go for it! I’ll be posting my artwork for you to see…my first class is this Wednesday. Yay!
