Day 79

This is a pastel of the top of Cadillac Mountain, after the sun rose.

Day 78

This is my holiday offering, just because of the red and green.

I took a break from pastel today and tried some watercolor. I got the paper nice and wet and let things flow.

Now, back to pastel. I think I just burned out my vacum and the light I am using seems to be melting around the blub and dripping plastic. It can be quite scary around here sometimes, especially when no one is around to supervise me.

Merry Christmas to all!

Day 77

Pastel again today! This is the view of sunrise from our room at Old Orchard Beach. We try to take the dogs down for a walk at least once a month in winter. Joining us on the beach are cross country skiiers, horses and riders and lots of other dogs. Large pockets are required to gather shells and other beach finds.

One of my orders of Wallis paper is here, and the other is on the way. I also purchased a few sticks of pastel from Dakota which should be here in a few days....I can't wait to try "bottle green".
