Ahh, pastels! This is my favorite medium. It is fast, colorful, and messy. While in Kerrville, I visited The Museum of Western Art. One of my favorite artists on display was a lady named Karen Cooper. She did pastels on black paper. Her paintings were really cool, so I thought I would try the technique also. I have plenty of western photos that would work well with the lighting needed. Here is my first attempt.
I have GBN1 today. She spent the night last night. After playing in the park, eating dinner and watching a movie, we were hoping she would be worn out and ready for bed. No, she was wound up. She chatted for a while before finally falling asleep. This morning we hitched up the horse trailer and helped a neighbor take her horse to the vet. It has been quite a morning. Later we will meet Toby and Jesse in the park for lunch. And then...a nap!
