OPA Guest Bloggers

OPA Bloggers are selected from active and distinguished figures in the art community.  They volunteer their time, effort and experience to shed light on topics that are most valuable and important to artists in the fine art realm.

Each week we will present new posts from our bloggers and offer an opportunity for you to respond and interact with some of the best and brightest in oil painting.

Currently, bloggers are being hand-selected, but if you are interested in writing for the OPA Blog or have a particular topic you are interested in writing or learning about, feel free to submit an article below:
