Colored Pencil, 5.5x3.5"
Miraculous things happen to me when I do the 30 in 30 Challenge. Remember all the great things that happened to me last January during the first challenge? Well, this time, it's sort of a different but equally wonderful miracle.
My first love in art was colored pencil. A few years ago, I was packing for a trip and decided to pack away two colored pencil landscapes and a half-completed cat. I decided I didn't have room for them on the trip, put them away, and haven't seen them since. I have searched my home and studio intensely for them on several occasions throughout the years, and even asked my mother to check her guest room one time in case I had actually brought them and left them there. A few days ago, I was home and looked down and there it was, out in the open--a black zip-up pouch. I picked it up and felt that it had something hard inside and KNEW what it was--the backing boards to my CP paintings I have been missing all this time!
Just try telling me this is a coincidence! I think this is a whisper that it is time for me to revisit my first love. So...I did the above colored pencil painting that day and then another one last night--which I will show in a different post. And I'll show the missing ones sometime too...but...off to paint!
Goodnight everyone and hoping all fellow artists are still having fun with this challenge...
