Peaceful Afternoon, 6x6", sold

Peaceful Afternoon, pastel on paper by Adriana Meiss
  This painting of the Meadowbrook area by the university, is one of my three sold at the OAG annual spring show and sale this past weekend. I'm happy to say they were all bought by returned customers.

  Now, I'm in the process of cleaning my studio and sooner or later will have to make hard decisions about work that has been sitting around for too long. Sometimes cropping helps to salvage a painting but action is definitely needed because that pile of "not so good work" is a constant reminder of failures and it's best to start something new with a clear slate --- I might end up just hiding it...

 I'm hoping the weather improves enough so I  can open the studio windows to let some fresh air in and start new work.

Congratulations on the sales, Adriana! That's very good news. It's weird but some of my best work was done on washed off/brushed off surfaces. I think I didn't worry about wrecking a 'good' piece of paper. Enjoy the warmer weather - you deserve some good painting days!

Thank you Donna. I'll keep my eyes open while I erase or brush off pastel from those failed pieces. I've already have a board with ghost colors suggesting a storm!
