Teacher Institute Workshop Day

Heading Home, Oil Pastel on board
approx 12x10"

Once a year, teachers in our county have a Teacher Institute Day.  Today, I had the pleasure of going to a workshop by Carol Zack on using oil pastels.   
I'm not new to them, I've worked in oil pastels in the past; but Carol had some new methods and ideas.  All in all, it was a great time ~ and this painting was the outcome. 
 Looking forward to more paintings to come!

Slow but continuing progress....

Such slow progress.... very tedious work, but I am making progress!
I hope this will be the last post before its truly completed.  
There are many layers here - lots of color upon color.   Its still dictating to me what needs to happen! 
Its kind of exciting to be creating - yet, not really knowing what the end result will be.

Driven to abstraction! The work continues....

My work is continuing on this larger abstract.  Scroll down a bit and you'll see what it looked like a week or two ago.   The fun thing about doing such a piece - I only have a loose idea of what it may be.  It seems to dictate to me as I go.  So, as the artist - my understanding of it is developing as I work.  I look forward to seeing its final form too!   It remains a surprise for all of us!

In progress.... working on an abstract

22x15" acrylic on paper 

This one is very much in progress.   The white squares you see are areas that have been masked... they will be removed eventually revealing some under painting below.  Its been rather slow going - and I've struggled to understand where it needs to go.  But I will continue to work through it.  I'll post the progress here, as I continue.
