This is the first truly creative thing I’ve done in a while, because things have been kinda crazy lately. It’s been a rough December, with my husband on disability. But we survived it, and we love each other, and I got this image in my head one day of a heart with lots of colors and swirls and knew I had to create it. I’m not sure how much this actually looks like it, but this is my interpretation of the vision and I love how it came out.
My first foray into oil paints turned out to be pretty fun… until it came to clean up time. I don’t have turpentine to clean the brushes, which is what the paint box suggested, but I discovered I could clean the paint off my fingers (which ensued from the unsuccessful attempt to clean the brushes) with eye makeup remover. My brushes are still full of paint, but I don’t like them too much so I’m okay with them being ruined… Anyone have any suggestions on how to clean oil paint off brushes without turpentine? I’m too lazy to Google it.
