I am spoiled rotten...

Yesterday I got this in the mail:



Another of Nel Jansen's gorgeous daily paintings, and trust me on this, the scan doesn't BEGIN to do it justice.  It is just stunning...if you haven't visited Nel's everyday painting site, do yourself a favor!  It's here: http://nelseverydaypainting.blogspot.com/ 

I am allergic to oils, and Nel makes me very, very sorry about that.  What richness and depth...wow.  I wish you could see the original. I'm stunned at how much more beautiful this is in person that it is, even, in the lovely photo.  I'd be doing the happy dance if my knee would let me!  Thank you, thank you, thank you, NEL!

Wow indeed!

Are acrylics close enough to oils in effect that you could try them?
I do paint with acrylics, some, but they don't seem to have the gloss and blendability that this exhibits. Lovely, isn't it!?
