|Evenfall, pastel on board by Adriana Meiss|
A new year, a new easel to replace the one I got years ago from the curb, and lots of new ideas I'm eager to put into paper or board!
There was so much frenzy during the whole month of Dec, that I felt I needed a long period of rest. My first pastel of the year was started just 3 days ago and although is coming along very well, it is not ready yet, so I'm posting a small painting done last year for Plowshares. It's based on a photo from Alverna Heights, near Green Lakes State Park. The body of water in the middle ground doesn't exist but I thought it added interest to the scene.
Some of my plans for this year include painting in oils and selling small paintings from this blog ( yeah, I know I have said this before but this time I've already taken the first steps). I wish you perseverance to succeed with yours!
