Finally! Back to life drawing models

FEMALE SKETCH
pastel on Canson Mi-Tientes paper

 Sure takes a long time to get back on track! 

And I have my studio together for one week now,
as well as been going to life drawing at
New Mexico Art League in Albuquerque. 

They have wonderful models weekly and this one
was done in a three-hours timeframe. 

So great to be back in the game!!!!

Many have wondered where I have been. 
Wandering as the clouds I have gone.

Transitions from one-state-to-another 
and then relocating into a new home. 
I must admit it took much longer than I anticipated,
but I am back!

In the set-up of my studio, I had a bit of an accident
that delayed me even more.
This was nearly a 3 /12' diameter of my pastels - oh no!

BLUE CLOUDS - pastel by Susan Roden

BLUE CLOUDS

Floating  . . .  in the blue sky,
the white clouds reached to the heavens. 

Resting . . .  in the air
high above the Earth.

At peace . . . may they encase 
your spirit for eternity.

With love Bobby. 
We are missing you greatly . . .
