I love painting with oils although I find it a demanding medium, requiring the blending of endless layers before the paint dries and the next ones is applied. Their rich colors and density are as striking as wild flowers in the spring. One of my large painting demands hundred of hours of work, its beauty revealed with the last brush stroke. The brilliancy of oil color is unsurpassed and has been prized for centuries by art collectors. My favorite oil painters are Hieronymus Bosh, Van Gogh and surrealist René Magritte. Art galleries, art consultants and art museums value oil painting the most.
