144This is a portrait of my son that I did in oil pastel with some oil paint highlights in there too. It took me forever to finish. I was so busy over the holidays and literally had ten minutes here and ten minutes there to finish it, but I kept at. Annoying at times but in the end I feel good about it. Keep drawing/painting everyone :o).

flowers

So I finally finished this latest oil pastel, and boy did it take me a long time to finish.  I have to  wedge out a few minutes here and there to work on my pastel pieces.  I find I work alot better when I can get lost in the work for awhile, and like I said before it’s tough to have that extra time so I adapt and make the best of the time that I have.

I was in the middle of another piece, when I came across this picture of these flowers and wanted to give  it a shot!  There was alot going on in the pic and I wanted to see if I could capture the all the working parts in cohesive, attractive manner.  It came out alright, I think patience is perhaps the most important thing that anyone can do when they are painting/drawing….I think that I get a little closer with everyone, as always there is still alot of work to do….can’t wait……guesss I am inpatient :o).     Keep drawing everyone..

Here is my latest oil pastel. It was done in sennelier oil pastels and oil paint.  I must say that I had no idea where this one was going when I started.  I was going to tear it up at one point, it was a Saturday morning (last weekend as a matter of fact) when I woke to work on it, and I just wanted to throw the “damn thing” out, but before I did I was like just make the best out of it and perhaps learn something in the process.  So that was just what I did!  I had a good lesson in blending colors, and lesson in not giving up.  I know that I will never get any where with my painting unless I perservere and keep on going.  Isn’t that true with everything!!!
