    Dear Amy, it takes great skill and visual memory to translate an image into oils. I do love the textures and the richness of oil but lack the discipline to attempt it! You've inspired me to try.

    Don't make excuses for pastels, you are being creative, don't worry about what other people consider them to be, just enjoy them, and what you produce.

    Burning marks into wood so they form pleasing shapes and patterns is creative, you are an artist, don't knock yourself.

    I know the feeling. I am a dabbler and impatient so I don't use oils much - I love pastels, ink, watercolour as they are quick. I also recently loved the digital painting using IPad apps!
