I took oil painting classes when I was 16 for 2 months and now it’s been about 7 years since I last busted out my entire Winsor & Newton supplies. I’ve always loved the smell of linseed oil so getting back into the hobby was a relatively smooth transition. These designs are inspired by some Parisian-style, old-timey prints from Michaels that I found to be the chicest things ever. My own imitation is a lot less chic but has the personal DIY touch ;).
The 1987 one with the Pearl of the Orient represents me and the 1988 one with the word Rome artistically cut off represents John. They’ll be a nice size addiction to our new apartment when we move.
