It is Sunday and they happen to be playing something called the Super Bowl and I was able to spend the day in the studio. This is the result – a super bowl chicken. It is pastel and larger than a sheet of print paper, I am proud to say. I have only been doing small things lately and I want to paint/draw/create larger, but just haven’t convinced myself to do anything that will take longer than a couple of hours. Well, this didn’t take much longer than that and it was super fun pulling out pastels. These were my mother’s pastels (mine are buried under hers) and hers were, I am sure, organized the way she liked them. I just used what was on top. And that was mostly Sennielier. Oh, the pleasure of using Sennelier soft pastels… What an inheritance!
