|48 x 48 panel prepared for pastel with gesso, acrylic, pumice|
Yes! The panel is done and ready for something wonderful to happen. Hooray! What you see in the photo is the panel with no pastel on it, but since I took the photo it now has an initial drawing on it and a light layer of pastel. More to come!
And, exciting news to report! Last Saturday I was invited to a meeting of the Portland Women in Abstract Media group (PDX-WAM for short). They are a wonderful group of interesting women who are passionate about art and life and creating and I loved seeing their work (for critique) and hearing their comments about my work. Today I was invited to join their group! Hooray!
It is thrilling to me to continue to discover art and its many facets. The more I learn about art, the more I want to learn. And, the more I realize I have yet to learn. When I think about it, I think that art has a long future.
I'm sure that this cellist took a while before he discovered these many facets of playing his instrument. And, so it is for me with art. I love landscape. And representational work. And figures. And abstractions. Pastel. Watercolor. Oil. Much more to discover ahead. Life is good!
