Oils on Board
To a new collector of my work in the USA

Finally managed to finish the little study of the Arabian foal, I really enjoyed working on it, oils are such a juicy medium to work with. I'm gradually working with them again as I had a reaction to them when I started painting full time. The continued use triggered a reaction to my Asthma, I now use a low odour white spirit and that seems to have helped. That said if that hadn't happened chances are I would never have taught myself to use acrylics, believe me there was much ranting till I figured them out lol.
I've been caught up these last couple of weeks doing paperwork and getting my accounts ready....I haven't been a happy camper. But it's done and now it's catch up time. I'm way behind with my 100 paintings under 100 GB pounds so will try to catch up with them for the next few days. After I've caught up I'm hoping to set aside Tuesday and Thursday as the days they'll be posted on the Blog. So this wee gem is one of my catch up paintings and is No. 5 of the 100 and will appear later this evening. Got to get dinner ready now and horses sorted phew it's never ending. Might take the chance to do a spot of gardening as well......thank goodness for longer light :))
