I did not learn to paint in an art class. In college I was buying things to decorate my dorm room. Many students were buying posters. I decided to pick out my favorite posters and paint them. I thought it would be nicer to have a painting on my wall, then a large piece of paper. Below are my first oil paintings. They were the ones that taught me how to use oil paints on canvas. I fell in love with oil painting and it is still my favorite paint to use.
