Bella

Another one of my favorite dogs, and yes I have, like, a million favorite dogs. This one is my favorite little sausage dog (mini-dachshund), Bella, for my good friend Laura.

    Hey you mentioned somewhere that you work oil on paper?! what paper?! and how does it stand up? and why haven’t I been doing this forever?

    • UMM, SERIOUSLY. AH-MAZ-ING! I think it’s a relatively new invention. Or at least I have never heard of it until a few months ago. It’s my new favorite thing in the world. I wish we lived closer, I’d give you a sheet to try it out!

      It’s Arches oil paper – here’s the link. It’s like painting on watercolor paper, but there’s no yellowing from the oils.

      I don’t use any mediums, so I’m not sure how it holds up with turpentine or thinner paint. Let me know if you try it out!
