Oil painting is something I enjoy very much. My first oil painting was painted in 1965. This was a beautiful beach scene from a slide taken with the sun setting over the water and underneath I painted the text, “From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same the Lords name is to be praised”. Strangely enough my latest words, at the moment, that came by inspiration, is entitled, “This is a Beautiful Day”. My husband Ted (Olympus77) asked me to paint a W.W.11 aeroplane for him and he liked the result so much that I have continued painting aeroplanes and a few trains for him down through the years. I enjoy painting these pictures very much, and though I love painting all sort of pictures with texts I feel that the aeroplanes present me with the biggest challenge.
