Here is another journal page started with pastels. Unfortunately, you can't really see the shimmer in this picture. I didn't get the same vivid color as with the Pan Pastels. Maybe I should add another layer of color.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
