Whew! I have finished the 5 paintings – 8″ x 10″ oils – for the $120 reward category. They are now waiting to dry. That will take at least a couple of weeks for the oil paint to be dry to touch. Then I’ll put on a protective varnish. Then another week or so for that to dry….
Technically oil paintings are considered still wet for up to 6 months, depending on how thick the paint is put on the canvas. These are painted thin to medium thickness of paints. So when I mail them out I will package them up very very carefully and cross my fingers no elephants sit on them at the post office.
