I wasn't going to buy them. It was really easy to have self control when no one in the area sold them. But now Curry's is carrying Pan Pastels and I really do love pastels. I love the way they blend so I did it. I purchased a five pack. I think I can live without buying ALL the colors but I will NEED to get a few more colors. I think I need to buy some more of the tools as well. The tools really do help to blend the pastels nicely.
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.
