Gerry and Oil Pastel
I am continuing to explore the medium and tonight I rather emjoyed he creamy blending and mistakes from dirty blending all mixing together. Layers upon layers of oil pastel. Have done that so long with color pencil it seems so natural. But the effect is so very different.
I stretched my wings a bit and uploaded pictures on facebook again. Was attempting to limit viewing to artist friends but not sure that was possible unless I identify the hundred plus artists individually! There must be a way. So there may be fallout when Gerry pictures hit the family network. Tonight, I played Coldplay, Eric Clapton and Santana at session this evening. I didn't hear any complaints. Was baffled by need to stay home and need to go. I really cannot afford the fee nor the gas to head over there. This evening my headlamp went out and was concerned about making it home without a ticket. Tomorrow's project. But I fell head over heels into the zone I longed for. I guess it is more important than the grocery staples I'm lacking. Often the only work I accomplish is at session. And then I feel like I spend all available time doing the background work on getting exhibited and am failing miserably at creating new work. Brought my dog commision in for a critique this evening and have new direction there. Hope I get to it while the passion is high!God's blessings to all!
