Goodness. 1999. Oil on canvas. 24"x24".

I think it's finally time to add a painting to the mix. Although I had made one other oil piece before this, I consider this portrait of the band Goodness to be the first real shot I took at oil paints. Before that I had done acrylic and watercolor, which dry much faster. I like how forgiving oils are and the length it takes to dry gives a lot of flexibility and room for error. Drawbacks are the ventilation that's needed and waiting three weeks for the piece to dry, however.
