I'm not much of an artist, but I know that these outstanding oil paintings rock. There is just something about oil paintings that makes them stick out to me.

All of these outstanding oil paintings have something that makes them unique. Today is the day that you will fall in love with oil paintings all over again. I told you she'd wait.

Implications - My favorite oil painting by far in this collection is the renaissance-esque depiction of Homer Simpson. His bulbous eyes are actually quite frightening when viewers are supposed to look at him in a realistic sense. I also thoroughly enjoyed the Internet meme paintings, biomorphic oil paintings as well as artworks crafted out of old burger grease.
