Grine enjoys working with oils but have fewer paintings in this medium since she needs more time to dedicate to them.  She uses a similar approach to these paintings as she does to her pastels, and the subjects are usually the same.  These paintings are done from photos and sketches, since she seldom use oils for plein air painting.  When she takes a picture of a scene that she wants to use for a painting, she does the photography with composition in mind.  That helps when she is ready to start her sketch on the canvas.
