I absolutely love this painting. I actually love all of your paintings. Your ideas are fantastic and the execution is spectacular.
I just don't know how in the hell you manipulate the oils so well. I have tried so hard to paint with oils and every time I do I end up messing up, scrubbing it off and putting acrylics over top of it. 
Do you have any advice?

Keep up the amazing work :)!

Thank you so much for your comments!  My advice is don't scrub it off! I get the compulsion, but let it dry all messy-even if you hate it- and then do another layer in a couple of days.  My paintings look like ass for the first few layers, and I used to get really frustrated not being able to get it right in one session.. but now I accept it takes many layers before a nice, solid form comes together.

Thank you for the advice! I will remember this the next time I make an attempt at painting with oils!

Oh Yuck. That's DISGUSTING!! Ugh. I can look at so much horrific stuff, but I can't stand GRUBS. I used to have lizards and I'd dig up grubs to feed them, but they grossed me out. Spiders = love 'em. But grubs? Now, as far as grubs go, you couldn't have made a more beautiful one. But it's still LARVA!.

Just so you don't get me wrong, I added it to my favs.

haha Thanks! I am glad I can evoke any kind of strong response, even if it is repulsion.
