Oil sketch

Meghan   oil  8x10

This is an oil sketch I made a few years ago in a life drawing class. I liked the freshness of it. Painting in oils just brings home to me how much I dislike them. I find them hard to mix, they stink, they take forever to dry and I get the paint everywhere.

Once I started using acrylics, there was no looking back. They wash out (if you are quick) cleaning is a breeze, there is no noticeable smell and they dry in minutes. My kind of paint.

Dean Smale used to teach wonderful figure painting classes at Red Deer College. I miss him.

Supreme Court in the matter of Hobby Lobby

 Keep your rosaries off of my ovaries

 Featuring muppets enacting a video about health insurance being covered by birth control.

If you don't believe that women's birth control should be covered by health insurance do you believe that health insurance should cover viagra (because it does and to what purpose??)

I boycott Hobby Lobby because the people that I work for should not have the right to make spiritual or health decisions for me.
