This was supposed to be a practice sketch, I wanted to try these pinks on a flower like this, and I did it really fast. I liked it enough to post it, sometimes these little no pressure ideas surprise me.
Another view of the same scene, I am a little worried about posting, I'm afraid my artwork time is limited these days. I am preparing to go to Florida for the month of March, so all my time is going into getting ready and organizing things here so they will run smoothly. I am nervous about leaving for so long, but am also very excited. It is a trial for the future to see where and how my husband and I will like to spend winters as he slows down his work schedule. I plan on bringing supplies with me, but I can already feel the frustration with the need to paint but not being able to. Somehow I will balance things I guess, hopefully be inspired by new environment and get to see a lot of new art in a different part of the country. I will try to be diligent!
Please visit pastelNews.com if you have a moment or two. I am honored to be the featured artist, and I am also trying to promote the site. Mario Vukelic is from Croatia, and is one of these incredibly generous artists that spends time putting these sites together to promote other artists along with the medium. It's amazing to me that there are so many talented people out there working to educate and connect artists to each other as well as creating a venue for viewing and purchasing art. We are a lucky community, so please enjoy and spread the word! Thank you Mario!
