    2012 - Oil paintings

    In February 2012 I gained a massive burst of creativity totally out of the blue. I decided it was high time for me to start seriously experimenting with oils, and I'm falling more in love with the medium by the day. Why didn't I start painting with oils 15 years ago? Why?
