Thanks for checking in this week!
When I was packing for vacation, I decided to pack my art supplies. I could not imagine not creating art for two whole weeks! I also decided to try oil pastels as I had not used these in many years. I had forgotten how incredibly beautiful they are! The colors are so easy to blend and are so rich in color.
I had been inspired by a photo of a friend of mine took while on her morning run. It was a pond that she has jogged by many times. That particular day, she had to stop and snap a photo and take a moment to see the beauty of it all. The water had reflections of blue skies, green grasses, and leaves. It also had branches from the trees above, wildflowers, and the sunlight dancing of the water. I could not stop thinking about it and this is my interpretation of her photo. I call it Morning Run Pond.
Beauty truly is all around us every single day!
