Well, here is the first cow pastel painting. I wanted them to be playful and friendly since it is for the pediatric ward of Lodi Memorial Hospital. I deliver it and 2 others tomorrow after work. I didn't want them to feel like a photo but like characters. The cow in the back is saying...I can't see!
My meditation message today is that "people change and forget to tell each other." by Lillian Hellman We are always changing. Our only constant is change. by Anne Wilson Schaef. For those that maybe interested, I got great news today. I took "Best of Show" in the Delicato Art Show. I was so pleased because I have been doubting myself lately and was not sure this particular painting was the right choice for the show. I would not even have entered if my sweet Jerry had not encouraged me 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.
