These are my latest oil paintings from recent Vistas & Vineyard outings. The first one is of a tree farm south of Philomath, OR.  I painted it with regular oil paint.  The second one was of the Fiechter House (1857) at the Finley National Wildlife Refuge.  Both were painted on doorskins coated with Shellac and then Gesso,  however the second one was painted with Holbein water soluble oil paints.  I may just be a convert since it is far safer and less messy than traditional oil.

Your paintings are beautiful. The house is terrific, I love it. Reading you blog header, I was amazed. You certainly caught up well with your sixty years without drawing!
