About

Oil Painters of America exists to fuel the appreciation and preservation of representational art.  One of the ways we do this is through the OPA Blog, where distinguished artists from across North America share wisdom and perspectives to encourage and further the mission of the organization.  Thoughts from blog authors may or may not represent the perspective of Oil Painters of America, but aim to spur on discussion and growth for OPA members and artists alike.
