Daisies 5x7 pastel

'Karen's Daisies' 5x7 pastel
These are my daisies because they are from my imagination. I just had fun playing with color and painting one of my favorite flowers. I plan on doing more imagination paintings. This one was too much fun. I am gearing up to a total redo of my pastel box. I have so many little pieces and everything is a dusty mess. I will go 'shopping' in my own studio and replace the bits and pieces with new pastels. I dread it but it will be wonderful when I am finished!

I like very much the "cubist" aspect of your painting...
I hope I'm exressing myself right.

This is a lovely painting! How fun to "shop" in your own studio:)
But i understand about redoing your pastel box. I have mine in various boxes by color and at one point they were in neat rows set up by color, temp, and value and now they are a mess. I dread redoing them! I paint with a friend and often she doesn't even get the pastel back in the right color box! LOL! It's a daunting task. I will have to do it at some point, but not looking forward to it. Right now searching for that right color is truly a pain! So, I know it will be very helpful, but when painting with a friend it is hard to expect her to put things back in the right order. I will have to get her to help me to do this.

Thank you Mariela. It is so interesting to see what we come up with without any references!

Sara I agree. I so dread the cleaning out of the box. Last time I did it it took me all day! It will be worth it!
