Paper & Pastels
Papermaking is in full swing. Getting set up for today's session. Re-worked a pastel on black handmade paper. It is almost done, went ahead and signed it but may do a few last touches later today or tomorrow.
Will have papermaking going through Tuesday. Then it all goes away for another year. March will bring marble paper, intro to printmaking and of course there is plein air painting each Saturday at the Botanical Gardens.
As inspiration is growing I am feeling the need to go bigger in my work. We shall see what happens next.
Until then here is "Wolf Moon".
