"Morning Celebration", 12 x 16, pastel on Canson Mi-Tientes paper.
Rather then doing a specific dedicated painting, one that takes planning and focus, I have been taking an easy does it approach this summer. Creating on impulse you might say. Simply enjoying the feeling of a free for all with my pastels. If something happens while I'm doing this, something that catches hold and leads me down a specific path toward a complete painting, all the better. Many go into the burn folder but some new works are born out of this. Anyway does it matter? I'm enjoying the pure pleasure of creating. I'm at my own summer art camp right in my own back yard.
