Pastel Moment

The quote below is from Clint Watson in his "Fine Art Views". I subscribe to his newsletter. He publishes articles from some of the other blogs I subscribe to, but I like the one today called: The Moment of Hope. Check it out.

"PS - It may seem a bit of a downer, that the better you get, the more you realize that you're not great. However, it's not.
Creative pursuits require a lifetime journey of commitment and growth. It's a journey, not a destination....so while you may never be satisfied that you have "arrived", you'll get a bit closer every day, and the true greats all enjoy the ride.....and what a beautiful ride it is....won't you join us for the journey?"

Goin' Red
8 x 10 inches Pastel on Art Spectrum Pastel Card (Colourfix)

I did this pastel last summer. You will find a demo on my web page.

I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children. That started in Bolivia with Para los NiƱos. (Link on sidebar) "I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colors. I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns." -- Winston Churchill
