Bonneyville Mill

Having posted a recenty finished oil painting yesterday, and having explained that I am recently retired and just back to painting again after 25 or so years, I decided to post a couple of former paintings.  This is another oil done during the 1980's.  As you can see, I have previously been very detail oriented.  Whether good or bad, that was my style.  In  the recent painting I tried to get away from some of that detail and was merely trying to get the feel of the oils again.

About Kathleen Wolfe

I am a retired legal secretary and just now beginning to paint again after about 30 some odd years.  I am self taught, although have attended classes at local art leagues.  I paint mostly in oils, however have done both pastel and watercolors as well.  Landscapes are my first love, but also have done some floral still life, and a bit of portraiture.  My biggest issue right now is forcing myself into the studio......that white canvas is intimidating, and OMG, what if I make a mistake!!  :)    I know, no guts, no glory!  The point right now is to practice, practice, practice.  I have found this website totally awesome and love the videos, and downloads that are available.  Such a good learning tool.
