Art of the Week

"Art of the Week" is sort of a joke, because I don't produce art every week. I used the second page of this particular sketchbook. On the first page was a quick pencil sketch from the fall and penciled in comments on how I was going to do a sketch every day. I drew this picture on Friday while messing around with my old oil pastels. I haven't touched them in years, but I am excited to try something a little larger so I can get the details the way I want them. Oil pastels are messy. And making a mess is fun. It was a good day.


  1. This is awesome! I really wish I had some artistic talent. But alas, I don't.

  2. Beautiful!

    Goat cheese and chocolate sounds heavenly...I will have to try it in a few months when I have goat milk and can make cheese (the next frontier.)

    Thanks for commenting on my blog!

  3. That is so beautiful! Look at you...sketching are a very accomplished young woman. You sew and paint and I know not what.

  4. Hey, thanks for the sweet comments on my blog! I love getting feedback from readers. Also, I completely have a thing for all things Jane Austen. Have you been watching Masterpiece Theater? Ahh, the dresses!

    Hope you have a wonderful Valentine Week.


  5. This is so good! The face looks great! SO impressionistic and romantic. I need to be inspired but kind of want to just go back to bed....uh oh.

    I am jealous of your inspiration! I need to create something!

  6. That looks like a fun way to make a mess and release a little stress.

    Just popping in through...? hmmm how did I get here?

    Oh well - the picture is lovely.


  7. How fun! I haven't touched my oil pastels in years . . . Maybe I should try them again . . . Anyway, it's great and I can't wait to see the bigger one yo plan to do next!
