This is a blog about painting: specifically, representational fine art, generally, using oil paint. I think a lot about what I'm doing, and those thoughts about subject matter, technique, influences, frustrations and delights all show up here. It's all about the journey.

I thought I'd try it, since I'm uninterested in doing much else lately. So this is the initial drawing.
