This elegant creature will be on eBay sometime today. The painting is in pastel on a new surface by Jack Richeson, called Unison Premium Pastel Surface mounted on Gatorboard. It is new to me anyway. The surface is said to "grab" the pastel a little more than regular pastel paper so less fixative is used and less care in handling is necessary. That remains to be seen. I do enjoy trying new things even though they sometimes don't work out. I fell in love with pastel the first time I tried it, but I did have to try it. The same with acrylic, but I had to "try" it several times before I finally decided to like it. All of my favorite stand-bys began as trying out something new. And that's my thought for today.
P.S. There is a "blizzard warning" out for toda, so if we lose our power, I won't post tomorrow either!
