I really enjoyed the oil painting I did a few months ago and was eager to share this re-discovered hobby of mine with anyone who was willing to give it a shot. Jason Shelfer is into art and was also wanting to try out his new art studio… so we decided to have our rendition of a man-date…making oil paintings.

I had an excellent time, except that the fall scene I was trying to paint looked more like candy land so I ended up scraping off most of the foliage and re-doing it with typical shades of green. Which is fine except that it resulted in a painting almost identical to the one I did a few months ago.

About the only thing different about this version was that I painted the whole thing using a palette knife and no brushes.
