First Oil Painting

My first oil painting. It is still wet in this photo so some areas are kind of shiny. I still need to paint the sides , I'll probably do that in the next week or two. I am very happy with it and just started my second painting tonight. I was hoping to apply for a gallery show this May but I won't be able to afford the ten canvases I'll need to meet the quota. I am going to try my luck at selling paintings on Ebay and Etsy. It is hard to tell if they will be well received or not as I haven't seen anything like what I am doing. I get very frustrated when I see abstract crapola being sold in high volumes. I don't get it. I guess when I look at a painting I look at what amount of skill and thought would have to go into it and some things are clearly just scribbles on a canvas. Yet people eat it up. Weird.
