Sorry about the bit of glare on this one...like a dummy I shot the picture after I had it under glass. Not smart! This pastel was done over several days always at 4 A.M. looking down into a mirror. I have gotten stronger since I did this piece but I still like the idea of it. I am actually doing the pastel in the pastel. I am learning that I have to take care of myself or I will not be able to produce my creative work. I need to learn to say no more often and be more selective of what I say yes to. Good night all!
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
