My First Oil Painting

Today I finished my first ever oil painting. Feel free to applaud. My fellow classmates did.

The piece is a rendition of Edward Hopper's "Lighthouse Hill" (1927). I find it ironic that my first painting is of a lighthouse, as I hate lighthouses because of a trip to the Oregon Coast gone wrong (the Troxell family will know what I am talking about). Anywho, here's Hopper's piece:

Here's mine. I didn't think it turned out half bad. Well I mean you can at least TELL that there's a house and a lighthouse in the picture, and I figure that's a start.

I don't know if this classifies me as an "artist" yet, but I'm at least well on my way.
