waiting game

Living in the present is sometimes difficult. I know the events of life have to play out in their own time.  What I choose to do while waiting is of utmost importance. I don't want to look back at a period of time and realize that I was so preoccupied with what I hoped would happen (or not happen) that I missed the blessings of the present.

At 24.5 x 18.5 inches, this is my largest abstracted work in pastel to date. It was fun to have more space to explore relationships but the larger format also presented additional challenges. At one point I thought I might cut the painting into several smaller paintings. I had too many precious areas. I finally relinquished some to bring "Waiting Game" together.
