Bridging the Day, 8x6" Pastel on sanded paper SOLD
Fall is here with a vengeance and am trying to get out and paint as much as I can before the Portland rain begins in force, but I also haven't posted much to show for it. This one was painted on Sauvie Island last week, in the Wildlife Refuge area days before they closed the gates for migrating birds. We saw sand cranes high above with gracefully flapping wings and a funny sounding bird call as they climb the skies. It's musical at best.
On another note, I have a new project that I've been wanting to do for some time and I am f i n a l l y tackling it! I'm teaching kids art! And after about the second class, I have found out that I really LOVE IT! I have also noticed that kids are not as critical of teachers as us adults can be. They just take it and make it! So, it is a bit time consuming to prepare for each lesson, which takes away from my time to paint and blog, but it has been rewarding.
