Would you like a peek at my first oil painting in more than 30 years?

I am giving away my age but, I haven't used oils or painted a lot in more than 30 years. I thought maybe you would like to see what I am working on:) There is more work to do but so far I am happy with my results, not enough to call it done and sign it, but getting there.
 I took a shot focusing on my vines, I am having so much fun with those!
This is a mixed media piece in oils and acrylics on an 18x24 canvas board. This was a real challenge because I am used to acrylics and they dry super fast, the oils can take weeks to cure. I hate to admit I stuck my hand in part of the wet paint and had to do repairs:(Now I see a spot I need to fix:) So I am going back to work!
Don't you enjoy learning new skills or reviving an old one? Thanks for visiting! 
God Bless you!
