I stopped painting for a while. I did other things, but it never really left my mind.
In the meantime, I started working for MTG and that involved having to do card alters at events and such. It inspired me to break my paints back out. Moving from small, to big, and then back to small again.

lt felt good to move paint again.
I moved to small canvases and then popped out one big one that had been swimming around in my subconscious for a while.

I was working in acrylics and was struggling to keep the paint wet and consistent. I got fed up and went out for a big Blick sale and got some oils (thanks to Aaron Miller for his http://oilcolorpalettes.blogspot.com/ for helping me choose the paints).
I took it slow and didn’t commit myself too much to what I was doing, but I have been thinking about it for a while.
l dld these oil paint sketches last weekend.
Getting the itch to tackle something big again.
