This morning I started walking again. It's been around 2 months since my ankle fracture, and it was great to be able to walk around the lake at a good pace. It was a muggy start to the day, but the birds were singing, the turtles were poking their little heads above the water line, and the cattails were silhouetted against the sparkling lake. Nice.

Pastels for the tulip study on textured paper and colored pencils and ink for the abstract spread.
Even with all the academic projects going on, I did manage to sit and do some art during my first week off from work. It felt great to play with art supplies again.

This morning in the studio... hard Nupastels in my small Moleskine. I added a textured, peach colored, Mi-Teintes paper on the right- hand side, because I wanted texture for the pear study. The left-hand side is plain Moleskine paper. I don't have soft pastels, so I used what I had available. It's always fun to try and use large sticks of color. It keeps me from getting too obsessed with details.
