Oil Paintings by Christina Fountain

I went to university for both graphic design and painting. This ended up taking a lot more out of me then I originally intended or expected, and if I were to do it all over again, I would have worked less and focused more on one major. I enjoyed painting, but I feel like I never got to a point of someone who graduates in a degree with painting. Anyway, here a few oil paintings of various sizes painted on panels. I was doing a lot of experimenting with different techniques, mediums, and both abstract and not towards the end of my education. 

I wish I would have had more time to really develop as a painter and to explore and really find my niche. I will have time in the future to continue to grow and change and explore, which is exciting.

Parchment Paintings by Christina Fountain

These are small scale oil paintings inspired by tattoo art. By using oil paints and real animal skin (parchment) which is also the oldest form of paper, I am trying to raise tattoo art/graphic art into a more readily recognized form of high art. 

These are great fun to make, and I hope to start another series of these very soon.
