Friday!


Today's progress so far; not a real lot will get done today; I am getting ready for a craft show tomorrow......
The next thing I am doing on this painting is the ghost effect on him....I am experimenting with it and I THINK I have it!

Putting the pastels down....


the last for today....

Gator!


I just realized I forgot to put Gator's finished painting here! Here it is...

Samantha.....new painting



This is a new painting, a commission, and will be a challenge as I attempt to create a 'ghost' figure of Samantha's owner with pastels....I have done it many times before (and enjoy doing it) with acrylic paint but never have successfully achieved that with my pastels. I will....I am determined! First, to get Samantha and her owner on the paper....this is already my second start on it (and final!). The color in the first photo is the most accurate.
