Well, I hope everyone recognizes that I'm playing outside my field and challenging myself with my new oil pastels. How far can you go before you've maxed out the paper? I was coming pretty close... layers upon layers. The building up of colors happens much more quickly than with pencil and I was hoping to not create mud. My shorter poses seem a bit more sucessful than the longer pose and I'm pretty certain I need to follow that less is more rule. But I'm moving along with my studies. I was running late to group, running errands dropped me behind and somehow there was no music before I walked in late. Visits with good people. Some back from Europe, some on their way to Seattle, several students whom I recognized from previous weeks but haven't picked up heir names yet. Chatting late with Ronnie, David and Gerry. All is well. Looking forward to next week.
