Edie Nadelhaft, Big Cherry Biter No. 3, 36" x 36", Oil on Canvas
Why do you work in this particular medium? Oil paint is sexy and it takes a beating, by which I mean you can work back into it, unlike paper which is very unforgiving. The qualities that I found most frustrating when I first tried it are precisely what I value most now. The viscosity, the fact that it's slow drying-these are aspects of oil paint that make it so magical: juxtapositions, edges, depth, luster... And smells great too.
