After finishing "Dream Catcher" last week, I expected my next painting to be similar - quiet, reflective and understated. So, when I read the Spring/Summer 2009 Pastel Society of the West Coast newsletter article by Margot Schulzke, "It's All a Matter of Focus" and her words of wisdom, "Much is said by not saying too much." it confirmed my recent art endeavors.
However, add a couple days of beautiful Washington weather, a grandson's soccer game, hours of weed eating, garden and yard work and something very different happened to the next painting. While the active busy days of summer begin, another part of my life is on hold. It's an exciting but sometimes confusing time.
