I’ve been posting single 5 X 7 paintings and sometimes a group of 3 or 4 and described (probably ad nauseam) the self-imposed rules that the pastel group on Wet Canvas agreed on:  completing 100 pastel paintings with no target date, same size (I chose 5 X 7), within an alloted time (I chose 30 min.) all using different colors.  Now that I’m at number 55, I’m really having to watch what colors I chose.  And to give you an idea of how I do that, I took a couple of shots of the 55 already done.  The 5 X 7s are affixed to poster board and propped around the area in front of my easel for reference.  I tried using photographs….and may eventually return to that method….but found looking at the originals more inspiring.

    It’s SO impressive seeing it all together like that, isn’t it?

    See the hills, the hills
    ever shifting in color
    shape never changing

    view, unwavering
    psychedelic mutations
    have I been poisoned?
