Study + gestural drawing of Sunflowers
Well I sure have been missing lately and this is one
of the reasons.
Have been preparing for the Second Saturday pastel
workshop, to be held at San Diego Museum of Fine Art
on April 11th. Feel so very fortunate especially since this
is concurrent with "Art Alive". This is a wonderful
event in it's 34th year, that utilizes florals to interpret
works of art.
The workshop will cover gestural drawing and creating
a floral pastel from life. Above is a sample.

in the life of an artist. That's when I take a break from my pastels and play with dolls. Such good memories but also creative and I must say, I'm being so green! Nothing like recycling long-forgotten dollies. This piece, "Then and Now?", owned by a private collector, has a petit pastel as the stomach, baby's body parts and hand-sewn clothing.
AS A LITTLE GIRL
from Painesville, Ohio, I always dreamt of becoming an artist. Somehow along the way I stopped and became a belly dancer. Yes that's right - a belly dancer. Sure was a crook in the road, but what an unforgetable experience!
I'm back on the road and painting away. I have a love for pastels with their vibrant colors and the way of manipulating the sticks, gives a feel of sculpting paintings.
