This time, I made things different by putting my hand on a pastel and then moving to another. Weird, but that’s what the challenge is all about.
This is the weekend for the Lakewood Artist Guild’s Spring Show. I will be entering 2 pastels. Less than previous years, but it’s been a busy time and I decided to take the stress off. They only have separate categories if there are at least 7 paintings in the same medium, such as watercolor. If there are fewer than 7, then those are all lumped together in a general category. In past years, there have always been fewer than 7 pastels, so I get judged along with drawings, mixed-media, etc.
We’ll see what happens this year. Pastel is becoming more popular across the country, but I’m not aware of anyone in the guild besides myself that works in it on a regular basis. Must make decisions hard for the judge!
I’ll let you know how it goes.
