Move Over Van Gogh

I survived my first oil painting class. There were about 10 people in class; some with experience, some without (yours truly being one of them). I was instructed to paint shapes, not things, and to seperate my scene into light and dark objects. I didn't finish my Welsh mountain scene, but I did walk away with my very own color wheel.

I will start the bidding at $500.

I'll outbid Mike by $1.00. Sorry, Mike! I figure his early works may be worth something one day!!

I'm going to be the big spender and place my bid at $2.00!

$2.00? I'm offended.

You didn't happen to buy any hues, did you? B/c if you did, I'm not going to bother placing a bid. Who uses hues? :)

I may be cheap, but that doesn't mean my paintings are. I bet Monet used hues...
