I equate using oil paint with eating comfort food in my mind anyway. Compared to painting with watercolor and acrylic, oils provide the oozy, rich warmness you get from eating mac 'n cheese, lasagna, cheesy mashed potatoes and the like. At least I think so.
I think in Denmark they have a word for it: hygge (hue-guh). It loosely means having that feeling of being cozy, charming or special--just like painting
I can't think of anything better than mixing up a palette of all values and colors of oils. Then you apply it via brush or palette knife for the cozy satisfaction of rendering a painting well painted.
Take comfort in your oil paint.
