|'A Little Piece of Heaven' 18x24 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
On Tuesday I had the honor and pleasure to do a presentation and demo for the Booth Artist Guild in Cartersville, Georgia. It was so much fun! I shared a lesson on how to create better landscapes and I did a pastel demo with a watercolor underpainting. I was running short on time so I didn't get to finish the demo. Here it is in the photo below.

I had to decide if I wanted to finish the scene I had started in the demo......or REIMAGINE and create a new reality. The demo served its purpose....teaching my technique for a pastel painting but I wasn't excited to finish it. It was time to reimagine.
