If it’s Monday, I must be using Pastels…

Actually most of this was done on Sunday.  I showed it to my son and received a “Wow”; my nephew and was pleased to get an “Awesome”; and then to my daughter who said, “You need to make her neck darker”.

Oh well, she was right. 

If my last post was Esther this must be Salome.  There is no innocence about this woman.  It is a new technique for me, painting on a commercially printed linen I have mounted onto a masonite board.  I think I like it.

    WOW, is right, Lauren. You inspire me. Keep up the good work. Never will I tire of your delightful bird nests. Nest egg would have been a good topic for the Monday morning group.

    Loved the pastel and the idea of the printed linen. Who would have thought. Congrats on the judge’s nod, too. If I was judge, you would have been best in show and I have no prejudice 🙂 C
