Remedy for a Grey Winter Day
 

I did a pastel demo at the Oregon Society of Artists yesterday. Always a mixture of emotions before I do a demo. It is kind of like hosting a party but having NO idea who or how many are coming. As it was, there was a wonderful turn out of curious artists that showed up.  


 I picked this photo to work from on purpose. Here in the Northwest we have had what seems like endless days of grey skies and rain, rain, rain! And I can tell you color therapy works! Just painting the warm tones of this little guy's skin, the yummy blues and greens of the ocean and the bright sandy beach cheered up my mood (and I hope the others!).  It was an hour escape for all of us in the room to be at the beach. 


I will be post the finished piece soon!
