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!
