Borrego Springs Painting, Completed



I finished Borrego Springs today. I am now packing up my pastels to go to IAPS convention. In case you missed my earlier post, IAPS is the International Association of Pastel Societies and they have a biannual convention. I will be taking an all day workshop from Lorenzo Chavez; watching a demo by Michael Chesley Johnson; and shopping for art stuff from the vendors. I'll take pictures and post them!

I told you that I don't comment, but I have to say how much I love the phases of your pieces. Please don't be discouraged by the lack of comments. I am a fan.

Thanks Sharon. I don't expect comments, so when I get them, I do appreciate them.

This turned out really well. How did you end up liking the board that you prepared?
Have fun at the convention!

Thanks Liz. I think I'll purchase a brayer to apply the gesso/grit mixture next time. I got streaks of texture with a paint brush, which make it difficult to get a dry medium like pastel into the little ruts. I'm looking forward to the convention...also shopping!
