Here is a pastel I did of "Phillip" I am waiting for feedback before I call it done for sure. I am hoping to send little "Phillip" to Germany next week. I promised to do this pastel early last fall and I am begining to feel bad. I have worked on it off and on between assignments for my MFA classes at the Academy. I had the face looking real nice and one of my high school students drug his hand across the face and ruined it, then the next time the face was almost done last week...I sprayed it and got heavy handed with the spray fixitive and the face disappeared...so this is the third time and we all know the third time is a charm!!!!! Right! I have 3 pieces on eBay that have never been on before so go to the link to the right and chack them out if you like. To see the detail in Phillip click the image.
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.
