This is the first oil painting I ever made. The original was a cutting out of a catalog of collector’s plates, and it was only about 4 inches high, so it was hard to see. My art teacher was paralyzed from the neck down and painted with his mouth. He started me off by showing me some simple brush, mixing, and color-matching techniques. A small area directly above the nostrils is his work, bless his soul. Original by Susie Morton.
