Well, here she is with more pastel added. I have made drawing corrections on the glass and a lot of value corrections, especially in the glass. It is not done yet. I am trying to force myself to stay with these pastels....till they are really finished. For me...this is very hard. I love to start paintings but hate the finish where I have to slow down and really think. Also there is the fear that I will ruin the piece if I push it to far. I know I am not alone in this feeling but the feeling is real and I have never been big on conflict and risk even in my painting.
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.
