"Spring Bouquet" Pastel Sold & On it's Way to California

I'm always happy when someone says "I just LOVE _____ ".  A friend from California really loved "Spring Bouquet" the pastel drawing I did on pastel paper and bought it so it is now on it's way to it's new home in California.

Original 9x12" pastel "Spring Bouquet"

"Pastel Spring Bouquet"
I thought I'd try my hand at pastels even tho I've had no instruction with them at all.  I started this little drawing yesterday (12 November 2011) in the morning and decided to try and finish it this evening.  I hope that as I try to paint/draw on a more consistent basis my work will improve also. 

Had good news as the tests I'd been taking the past three weeks gave me pretty much a clean bill of health.  Drawing and painting during this busy time took my mind off of tomorrow and kept it in today -- ALWAYS a good thing for me (smile).

"The Lewandowski Children" Drawings of a Special Family

"The Lewandowski Children"
Yesterday, November 1st, I went thru some old pictures and found one of three special, beautiful children of dear friends of mine and remembered that I've always wanted to try and capture their happy, glowing, loving spirits.  I'm happy with most of the drawing altho wanted to really capture the middle child's joy at life which I didn't feel like I totally did.  Still I'm happy with the overall drawings and am realizing that, yes, my drawing is improving as I draw and use my creative abilities more and daily if I can.
