Day 2: Blue Flower Painting

Posted by annagrace under Days 1-100

Today’s post is a project a did a few weeks ago when I was in Nashville. I used to paint a lot in middle and high school, particularly in oils. Painting was one of my favorite things I did with both of my grandmothers growing up. They’re both amazing artists and I always strived to be as good as them. When I got to college, I didn’t have the time or the space for painting anymore and I have severely missed it. Which is one of the many reasons I started this project. So, when I was in Nashville a few weeks ago, I decided to do my first oil painting in over 5 years in my Mimom’s studio. I did this painting in about 2 hours mostly because I didn’t have any more time than that, but it took over a week to dry! (probably another reason why I haven’t painted in so long) I then framed it in a cheap, but nice-ish metal frame from walmart and mounted it on my wall! Sorry the pictures are so terrible… I can’t find my cord to connect my camera to computer, so cell phone pics will have to do for now!

First Oil painting in 5 yrs!

I think it’s not bad considering how long I spent on it and how long it’s been since I painted last! I hope there will be many more paintings to come!
