Monday Morning Drawing Class



"Artist at Work"
12" x 14" Pastel

Blog friend Sherri was worried about me when I hadn't posted for so long. We are doing so much travel lately that I've been remiss at art and at posting. I am back and here is a piece from before I left. This was a fun one to create. I loved the crackled finish on the pitcher, the well used brushes, and the motley collection of paint tubes. It was a real challenge, but very satisfying to do.

I promise to jump start my art this week and get back to blogging. Meanwhile, here is a little remembrance of our recent cruise through the Panama Canal. The crab was delicious at the Crab Shack event on our ship.

Oh that crackled glaze was captured beautifully, Mary! Of course, I love the composition too as it is perfect for any artist. I do so love crab legs so that made my mouth water and I was noting the similarity in your and Bob's smiles. So cute, the two of you are!

Your pastels are always wonderful.
Love the good time your having in these pics.
I have a life changing event going on and will write you an email.

Hi Mary, I love your still life pastel drawings. I was so inspired, I took a still life drawing class myself. I hope you're having great fun on your adventures!
