Rare Earth, plein air pastels.

These are three of five drawings I have from available from my first Rare Earth Series. They are from work I did plein air in the Adirondack's. Mounted they easily fit in a 16 x 20" frame. The do need a float.

It was terrific making these drawings and I'm looking forward to making more this autumn.

in the studio : July 2011

All of that reassessment, organization, and letting things go — also known as the month of June — is over. Now I'm on an art holiday and will have four glorious days to spend in my studio making work.

New month new energy. Summer temperatures are baking my brain and it seems that I am finally ready to make some new work. The temperatures also make drawing with oil pastels glorious. It's like drawing with butter.

Took out the giant pastels they are inspiring in every way.
