Bonjour, je veux etre le monderne Da Vinci, oui.

Hello, I wish to be the modern Da Vinci, mhmmm.

I've never been a big painter... But I decided that at this ripe young age, I should start trying out all sorts of mediums. Therefore... I started oil painting.

To tell you the truth, I love it.
I haven't learned many techniques, because I'm slowly teaching myself and finding more and more ways to do all of it. Therefore. Amateur stuff...

This is my most recent one painted, and I've yet to finish it... But since it's been sitting on my easel for weeks, I should just post it here, and when I'm all the way done, I'll make another post.

Yes, those are all words. Yes, they do say stuff. Some of them are writings. Some are just random thoughts...
(I think I've grown as a painter in four paintings, and this one is the best yet. See for yourself...)

This one is of a girl named Alex. I did it randomly, and actually liked the way it came out. It's probably the most 0il-like painting I have. If that makes sense. Yes, it's supposed to be upside down.

I was trying to keep some balance here, and it came out a lot like I imagined it.

And this is the first one I've ever done, titled "Everything But" :].
It pretty much just flowed from my mind. I'm insane when it comes to doodling. So this has a lot from all of that good stuff. Blahblahblah.

Oh, and! This summer for three weeks, I'm taking art class at a nearby college. Since I'm only 16, and have to deal with normal art classes in high school... That is going to be an amazing experience. I'm taking painting and drawing, so hopefully we'll do something with oil paints. :D

i like these so much! the first one is wonderful, you are so right. i could see it hanging up anywhere. it's lovely. i wouldn't mind it on my wall.

these are really cool, and i'm amazed they're the only ones you've done. you're so young and i'm envious. i think you'll mature really well as an artist and a painter. i'd love to see the rest of your stuff, particularly what you "normally" do.

thank you for posting!
