A big happy 4th of July to everyone!
Latest Oil pastel. 30″by 24″ on watercolor paper.
I have been so busy that it takes me forever to finish a piece, but whatever it takes! …:0)
This was an oil pastel that I did a few years ago. I just stumbled across it. I remember looking through a magazine and saw this woman and decided to give it a try. It’s not my best work but I remember how enjoyable it was painting her. I have been trying to not be scared to put up some of my work, whether I like it or not.
I was inspired when I recently heard the famous song. I haven’t had alot of time to paint lately(like no time at all), so when I started this I wanted to go in a different direction. It became something entirely different than I wanted it to be! Needless to say I really don’t like it, but I always enjoy the process. Time to get more practice in.
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..
