My first Painting of 2012


children, chess, lighting, pastels, smiling, games, sunlight, portrait

Although I have only been using pastels for a couple of years the demand for my pastel portraits seems to be increasing so I have decided to focus on this aspect of my art during 2012 and am devoting a ‘spare room’ to making pastel dust in Ivy Cottage as well as The Kington Gallery ! To have received an ‘Artist of the Month’ award this January in ‘Painters Universe’ here on Red Bubble is a humbling and wonderful Kick Start to 2012
