Sorry, I have been so deep in teaching my high school art classes that I have really neglected my blog for the past month. I worked on this a long time for me. It is a 24" X 30" pastel on Canson paper. The scene is in Lodi, Ca. I started it last December and finally finished it about a month ago. AWS has some really good buys on Sennilier Pastels so I finally broke down and got some. They are so buttery to work with. Schminke are even more buttery but...those I really can not afford.....but they are heaven. I have about 12 sticks. WOW!!
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.
