...this painting and one other
...will NEVER be created in this manner again!!
Instead of oil paint applied with brushes, this was solely created
with what they call "Oil sticks", which have a "point" like a pencil...
so the entire surface is cover with a "gazillion" lines!!
Enough time to drive a sane artist, insane!!
WHICH take hours and hours to cover a 30x40 painting!!
I could have spent my time doing 5 murals instead!!
SO, this is truly a RARE creation!!!
