Well, it took me 9 monthes but I finally finished the pastel of Phillip and shipped it to Germany this last Monday. I made some changes in the background and quieted down the reflected light in the hat and jacket since the last posting. I threw my back out a week ago and 2 trips to see Dr. Toni Reynolds, (my Chiropractor) I am finally starting to feel a lot better. I am very tired...I am thinking that maybe I am not drinking enough water. Sorry, I have been very negligent about posting lately. I did not get any work in Pastels USA. Oh well. There is next year. I will just have to try again.
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.
