For the next couple of weeks I’ll be working on three oil pastel paintings to enter into the Annual Oil Pastel Society’s competition, theme ‘Journey.’ After much deliberation I’ve finally selected the scenes and this weekend I was able to work out black and white value-ranged underpaintings in acrylic. And now I have that feeling of excitement after seeing the underpaintings. Today I begin painting . . . all three paintings will be revealed after September 15.
Please know that I may be late in posting and going through your beautiful blog posts in my Reader, but promise to catch up as things progress.
Thank you everyone for your encouraging support during this past year, please enjoy some flowers from my garden . . . and please, feel free to use this photograph for a painting
