Live from IAPS Day Three


'Back to Albuquerque '.  2.5x3.5.   Pastel

I said I wasn't going to do it. But I couldn't help it. This morning the trade show opened and I found a few pastels that needed me! 


Also known as the Candy Store, the trade show is a pastelist's dream come true. Three rows full of our favorite vendors are a feast for the senses. Of course everyone loves the Terry Ludwig booth. Imagine filling a box with any color you want! I'll fill mine tomorrow.


Today I found a gorgeous box of Unison pastels that I had to add to my collection. I can't wait to try them!


The trade show is also a great place to watch some free demos. Several of the vendors have artists doing demos. Here is a shot of Marsha Savage painting and talking with visitors to the Terry Ludwig booth.
Tonight is the Paint-Around and welcome buffet. Tomorrow morning is my blogging seminar. stay tuned! Here is a shot of my goodies!

Oooh nice goodies! I'm drooling at those Unisons. What a sumptuous color range. What are those dark earth-tone square pan things, is that something you can apply dry? Interesting big brush. Cool they gave you a neat Uart shopping bag. Yay for a handy pack of Uart too. I love that surface, it's one of my favorites.

Purr and thanks for all the photos!

You must be in heaven with all those pastels! I would love to be there in the midst of all that talent! I would be gawking at all the famous artists , including you of course. I'm very excited that I was juried in to a national show! Sally Strand was the jurist, thank you Sally.
Have fun, can't wait to hear all about it!
