I don't feel cute

I've been busy messing around with the latest painting. It was fun:) Well, painting is always fun and relaxing for me, but somehow the current piece has different feeling.
I tried oil painting for the first time in 2007. I didn't know how when I first started it...completely blank..hehe. After getting to know a bit of basic oil painting, there was long pause. I started again around August 2008, but not really full time since we were still in the middle of settling in our new place. You know, unpacking, cleaning, painting this room and that....I got so many distractions. It wasn't until 2009 that I did it full time. Since I'm self taught, each piece is my self expression and also learning process.
The current piece I previously posted feels special because I felt like I express myself better. I also realized that I was a bit less over analyzing. I know I still have so many things to learn.

I'll update the progress soon. Meanwhile, I'm posting the other painting.

Thanks Zoe:)
I wasn't that scared with oils, maybe because I was only curious to begin with. Now I'm in love with oil painting...hehe
