Hello! I just discovered you when looking for information on varnishing and glazing with WSO - I'm excited to connect. I did some oil painting way way back in college and since then have mostly done calligraphy, (though it became more and more painterly) - up to and including teaching at international lettering arts conferences (see www.JoanMerrell.com)
Just started back into oils and I'm having a great time - I tried adding two photos of my first oils in years, but I don't think it worked. Guess I should re-read the instructions
OK, got it --- the tulips are 8x8 inches and shamelessly copied from a little photo in the index of Better Homes and Gardens, the mountain is 16x20 and from photos my brother and I took in Utah around Christmas, both done in class with local teacher Renee Nilges. Currently working on more 8x8 flowers from my own photos for a "garden series"
I live in mid-Missouri.
