Been Working in the Studio
I am thrilled to report that I have been working in the studio … using real, non-digital, art materials.Â This is one of the results.Â I have created 15 ACEOs that I like … and by the end of doing them, I was getting back in the groove again of how I use pastels.Â I have never tried to draw so small before – not in any serious way.Â Some of you know I have been trying to get back in there (the studio) to create with traditional mediums … so this is quite a success for me!

On the last several ACEOs, I was tackling them as if I actually knew what I was doing .. itÂ was a great feeling!Â I love working digitally and it has been wonderful for me to be able to … especially when I often didn’t feel well enough to be in the real physical studio.Â But it was also miraculous for me to be able go into the studio … where there is no UNDO button … and start to feel good about creating this tiny little cards (2 1/5″ x 3 1/2″) …. it started to be a whole lot of fun!Â Even though it is cold in the studio – the temperature is 63 degrees.
I hope you like this vibrant,Â colorful painting! I know I do … I use pastels in a way unlike most people … but I use them the way that feels right to me … Delighted to be sharing this with you!Â Thank you … I would love to hear about your own process in creating.
Susan Elkin and I have been working quite hard on her business and she has made incredible progress.Â Â By the way, Susan has posted today!!Â Thank you for stopping by!

Congrats, Diane!! It is just lovely!!! I Love your color blending and I always love flowers!! WooHoo!!!
Great job, Diane,on such a small format too. It’s good to see you using the traditional materials for a change. It shows us that you are indeed a true artist in all its forms. But we already knew that. These little works of art are precious and will be very meaningful to people. Too bad it’s so cold in your studio. Could a little space heater help?
This is very lovely Diane! I loved reading about the process of this piece too.
So glad to hear you are pursuing a passion and the results are so striking. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your process, except for the part about the chilly temperature, which I hope can be addressed so you are not uncomfortable while you are being so creative…
As much as I try I can’t get into drawing on the computer. I have the digital pad and everything. It just doesn’t feel like real art to me. How do you get into it? How do you know what to draw? I guess I should just keep practicing. Maybe I will get better at it. 🙂
