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!!!

Here is my latest oil pastel, I took this one from a picture and tweaked it a little bit…I have to say that it started out good, but then went south a little.  I wasn’t as patient as I could have been, I still like certain aspects of the piece.  I almost didn’t put this out there, but I figure why the hell not!  does it really matter……nice to connect with other creative people. Trying to get more pieces done, it’s just tough with my time schedule…..I have two more in the works maybe I can get them done soon.  keep drawing everyone.
