|'Blue Skies Ahead' 8x10 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
available in my Etsy shop. $165
I am always looking on the bright side of things and being home since March 3rd has given me time to do some things that a busy travel schedule hasn't allowed. We have spent a lot of time turning our neglected backyard into our personal staycation oasis. I will share photos as soon as I finish! I am also working on online workshop ideas and the first one will be ready in a couple of weeks! I have also painted a lot! I know that some are having a hard time painting now but for me it is calming. It also helps to have assignments and deadlines for my Patreon lessons!
Today I was thinking about past trips to Colorado so I decided to paint another scene from my jeep trip to Yankee Boy Basin....a bucket list trip! I used a repurposed 8x10 board. It had texture from the previous painting so I just liquified the pastel with alcohol. It felt great to get lost in the memories and the meadows!
What have you been doing during these strange and challenging times?
