Oil Painting on Stretched Canvas

 

My favorite medium on painting is oil. It's creamy, looks so rich and vibrant. Even it needs longer time to clean up as well as to dry, whenever I have enough time, painting in oil would be my first choice. 

 

Regarding the theme/object, my first choice is landscape, beautiful scenery. I often took pictures and then make it as reference for my painting.

My husband and I (and Sonny our Westie dog) went to Canon Beach for a vacation. We rented a house for a few days. We spent a lot of time walking down on the beach. Sonny was so excited.
