Today was day 1 of a three day pastel workshop being taught by Karen Chambers here in Black Mountain, North Carolina. She is battling to get me to loosen up and use more vibrant colors. She says I am too tight and REALLY need to loosen up. I know part of it is my style, but I am trying to follow her directions. (Really, I am trying, Karen!) We'll see if I do any better tomorrow.

Lorelle is back in the mountains, and I am once again in art class. This is my current project - a still life painted from life. The window and background is imaginary, but the book, table, and other items are real. I plan to add a sheer curtain and glasses on the book. It is 16 x 20 on stretched canvas.
