And now for something completely different. I was messing around with some oil pastels recently. There has been a lot of buzz about them lately and when I first started drawing I didn’t get it. In fact, I thought the drawing was too awful to continue with.
But then I used a white pastel on top of some of the color I’d already laid down and things started to merge and blend. That’s pretty cool. Cool enough that I went out and bought 3 more white oil pastels for future blending.
I started out drawing a little cobalt blue cup I’d gotten at Things, Things and Things in Iowa City in the late 1970’s. It had a gold half moon for a handle. That “gold” is now silver. I took some artistic license and added the heart.
Meanwhile, Miss Mews decided to help me take the photo of the drawing.
