A new year...

I started a project last year, I wanted to do a painting a week that was out of my "comfort zone". Unfortunately, I was blindsided by a traumatic injury to my painting hand and my hours at the easel had to be limited. Even now, my hand is still not right, and probably never will be, I am determined to do this project.

This is a pastel I did with four colors, black, ochre, white and red brown. It is  18"x22" and I did it with the pastels and the heel of my hand. I resisted the urge to get into detail (very hard indeed) but I stopped at a point when I looked at it and smiled. I am not sure that this will be my new style, but I hope to do more of these and have some fun. I hope you like it.
