Pastel a Day

Yes, it's the old New Years Resolution time - only 15 days late. I woke up this morning determined to refocused on new pastels for the coming 2011 art fair season. In November I moved part of my studio to Artists' Attic in Victoria Square at 401 W. Main, Lexington, KY and I've been having lots of fun experimenting with oils and new directions for some pastels. But now it's time to get back to more serious work. Goals always help. So my goal for the next 60 days - the number of days before KYCrafted The Market at the Fairgrounds in Louisville is 1 pastel per day. And I'm going to post each new pastel every single day. Bets on how long before I miss a day?
Here's the first entry for my 2011 "Pastel A Day" adventure.
"Val d'Orcia Farmland" 8"x12" pastel

Just in case you're curious about some of the new oils, here's one that will be part of the Artists' Attic "Off the Wall" in studio exhibit. Reception at Gallery Hop Friday night February 18.
"Florence Tourist Morning" 40" x 30" oil

See you tomorrow!
