Every so often a year comes along that changes the course of direction. 2012 was a year like that on many levels. It's a good thing!
It was a year of artwork commissions for me as well. Here are some highlights.
This pastel was a sample piece I tried for a "new process" I thought up. I was wanting to make chalk pastels bigger than the paper I could find, and on panel. Worked out pretty nicely I think.
