"Pepper, Pot & Red Onions", 8" x 10" colored pencil on pastel board
This is the first colored pencil piece I have finished since I started taking pastel classes with Deb. So now I need to start (and quickly) a piece I can use for the CPSA International in Atlanta this summer. I can't use this piece because it has Acrylic under the lights.
I now have uploaded the print size digital image to Imagekind.com so that I can get note cards printed. I LOVE their note cards...they arrive looking just super professional in their little plastic sleeve. The colors have been spot on and the quality of the card itself is very pleasing.
One of the online markets that I really seem to gravitate to is 1000Markets.com. I get pretty good views there. There is also a place for people to leave comments and each shop has the capability to blog right on their shop. Gee, one more blog...but the site is really clean and the people seem really encouraging. I loaded the original art for sale.
I also loaded the original art for sale on Yessy.com. It doesn't really have much of a community, which is sooooo fine. I have enough community. But what I do like is that the views are wonderful and come from all over the world.
We had a great class yesterday although my pastel painting is quite tenuous still. We discussed the "concept" idea again, and those thoughts are rattling around in my brain. Tomorrow I will post my work from class and talk a bit more about my "concept" for the painting as I understand the idea....which at this point is pretty close to nil!
