My creative life has been quiet the past couple of weeks although I recently began working with oil paints. This picture is my second oil painting, done in class yesterday. I find oils very freeing. I seem to be able to work with them quickly - much more so than pastels or textiles. The instructor works without mediums so we just put the paint on our palettes and go for it! I'm in love.

My latest work in progress pastel painting. That pink fruit is known as dragon fruit - very cool color! On another note...I have some batting in a dye bath right now and plan do some intuitive hand stitching on it tonight. I miss those quiet evenings where I would spend hours meditatively stitching.
