More Paintings, Oil and Acrylic
Chandra S Sherin (CSS)

While I feel great nostalgia for oil painting because it was a medium I had great affinity and passion for, I did give it up. I gave up oil painting for my health and for the health of the environment, as well as to find a practice that is more simple and eco-friendly. In place of oil painting, I first tried moving on to acrylic, but I did not find it as enjoyable. The following paintings span the transition from oil to acrylic.

What are the toxic aspects for a person and environment with oil painting and other methods? Highly toxic solvents mainly, and the plastic via containers and the paints themselves, like acrylic. While there are less toxic alternatives for solvents, none are totally safe. And while some supplies come in glass bottles, many others do not. Most artistic mediums have their issues. And there are ways to make them more sustainable and healthy, in most cases–with a little research and out of the box thinking.

Nowadays, watercolor, ink drawings, and digital photography are satisfying replacements for me.  I also have some fun renewing old objects I find, turning them into some form of art.

I still appreciate the works I did create with oil paints. And I had so much fun using lots and lots of linseed oil to get the sheen you see in this first piece.

Monotype Prints

Feb 2018

Welcome to a new start for this blog, and welcome to my 10 part art retrospective series to kick it off!

I have been blogging on WordPress since 2007. It started out as Moonseeds Weblog. Then, it transitioned to ChandraSherin.com. In 2015, the final transition transpired…this website and blog became, Wild Clover, which is my brand and enterprise.

To kick off this new blog, I wanted to highlight some of my journey as an artist. Not included in this retrospective: indoor murals, commissioned cat and dog portraits, and rain barrel paintings.

We begin this Chandra S Sherin retrospective art series with monotypes I created while in art school. Please note, these were at a time when my initials were CSC instead of the current CSS.
