Quick TABS to Joyful Stuff

All Creativity Counts

Famous words from my friend Karyl, who is a voracious quilter.  This woman turns out hundreds of quilts a year just to give them away. You should check her blog out at KarylsQuilts.blogspot.com

Here is my first pastel painting and I think it's done.  I put my initials on it (the first time I have EVER signed a painting) because I thought I loved it.  Now that I'm looking at it a week or so later, I'm not so sure.  But I'll share anyway, just so you all know that I am trying.

My initial sketch of the photo

The computer image was better to work from.

I might be "blending" too much ???

and YES MiMi looks on when she's awake.

Kay, this is very good. Congratulations on branching out into other mediums. You have done a very good job. I started with Bob Ross as well, and then took some workshops in watercolor and acrylic. I am inspired every time I read your blog. Keep up the good work.
