Oil Paintings on Canvas

The portfolio of Oil Paintings on canvas is like telling a story with paints. The blending of Oils with paints preserves the pigments in the paint and allows for easy mixing of colors, and defining the strokes more elaborately.

Besides brushes in oils, I use the palette knife to create bold strokes to define an object or, to realize an abstract of an object that I may want to define, and stand out over a more subtle background.
