Hi, I'm new here. I also have a long standing practice of not showing my work (Lol, over ten years of writing novels that I never send out). But images are such a shareable medium that I'm attempting to overcome this. This is my first oil painting in ten years, out of three total. Hopefully, I will soon have more but, I wanted to do one with whatever I had in me innately so I could have a "before" picture to look back on in a year or two of focused learning. Personally, I can see a lot I need to work on. But hey, it's a beginning, right? Constructive criticism and other sage advice warmly welcomed.
