Copper Reflections

(facebook readers, click on the blog title for the rest of the story)

Pastel on Copper 4x10"

I'm mostly caught up to my tutors on my new project...and spent today in the upstairs studio (breakfast room is my oil studio). It was SO good to get back after weeks of programming and creative thinking.

I may edit the amount of copper showing...will let her sit for a day or so and then decide. BTW, this is a bronze statue in the middle of a small lake. She is an indian maiden with a fish, somewhere in Texas. Friends Joe and Echo kidnapped us one year, Joe was the tour director and we toured his favorite spots for a week all the way down to Fulton, TX on the Gulf of Mexico. He was a fabulous host and made sure we saw the sights. Joe passed away a little over a year ago...and I have many good memories and great photos from this trip.

Started a new figurative pastel today as well, 26x16" and played around off and on all day with the background. Got some real cool effects.

Stay tuned for more from Vicki's studio...pastel work this week for the OPS pastel society show Nov. 7. I have two already, and hoping for a couple more good enough to enter!

Water, Water, Everywhere...! October Moses-Botkin Challenge

...facebook'ers, be sure to read the entire blog...

 A local weatherman did some research and found that normally sunny Northwest Arkansas has had under FIFTEEN sunny days in 3 months! No wonder we are all forming gills and webbed toes...:)

This month's challenge was from new member, Suzanne Berry, and was simply 'water'. Be sure to visit everyone's blog...some great artists!

Here is mine, from one of those brief minutes of sun:
