R.I.P. Michelle


For my 6 followers out there I'm posting a few close ups of this third one. Just doing the finishing off bits right now. Took some big A3 photos of all of them into one of the big art galleries here in CT this morning and they were so completely wild in their enthusiasm - with talk of sales and clients and percentages and other stuff that I was rather taken aback. After all this time (of not really being an artist anymore) I think I forgot how to 'talk that talk' - so I kind of babbled on distractedly about me and my daughter ambling through the pictures over here, there and everywhere and stuff. Plus I found out about the best pastels in the world - mmmm.

Also been thinking about the next picture - which will have a huge hand in it and maybe even a heaven in it and people having fun maybe - doing lots and lots of silly, lewd things to one another - yes, why not?

Plus now I'm feeling the urge to get back to the keyboard again and write. I feel a musical coming - maybe even a sci-fi musical.....woooooo!

Laters.

Brilliant news and I'm not surprised the gallery were so enthused!

Do you always draw in charcoal and pastel?

Near by said...

Ta both.

trust you to spot that Pot!

Plus I don't think she wants to get her hair mussed up either. Tssk!

I sometime use inks Pot or other stuff. Don't like oil pastels though - they're too smeary

potdoll said...

what are they then if they're not oil?

can/do you sharpen pastels?

Near by said...
