two - Abstract pastel by Susan Roden

  two 6" x 6" pastel  10" square white mat, glass + frame $175 + $15 shipping Well, ashamed to say it's been so long.  Even though there has been silence I've been working away. I finally returned to in-person teaching! That was a trip,  but a welcomed venture. Almost forgot to how-to-do it.  And I've been working on different projects, techniques and styles.  Above, two , is one venture. Abstracts with a focus onto  harmony, balance and rhythm. Also mark making. Will be  premiering several the next few days. And I've been working on a huge project which really has really   consumed my time! I'll be traveling to my art residency again in  a week to the Desert Dairy Farm, where I'll be focusing on this project.  More to come and promise I won't be so silent!
