This made me so happy to paint today. 10x8 pastel. It's of my Mom and Dad last May walking through Walmart looking for work gloves. A moment before they were holding hands, but by the time I got my camera out, this is what I saw. I moved them up a bit within the borders of the painting so I could paint the longer reflections of their legs.
This is the beginning of a 14x11 oil I started today. I'm working at simplifying shapes and softening edges, so wish me luck and wisdom in that effort.... I'm glad Desmond doesn't mind me working in oil. He says most of his workshops are offered to both oil and pastel painters, as I do in mine. I'm enjoying the company of the other artists this weekend. Hope you're having a good weekend, too!
