Shelter

Shelter means so many things, a good friend in time of need, respite from the harsh rays of the sun at midday or a space in life where everything is calm.

Oil on canvas board 8"x8"

I started oil painting last year without much of the equipment that is commonly used. Instead of using a panel holding easel I stick my canvas board to a piece of hardboard with blue tack. I can paint all around the edges and take photos without getting myself covered in paint.
