We do not remember days; we remember moments. — Cesare Pavese

Like many folks this month, I’ll likely be blogging less until 2015 rings in. Holidays and other distractions pull me away from the keyboard. Even with art, I’m not at the computer… I’ve gotten myself a fresh box of pastels and a pile of paper to play with. Gettin’ my hands messy for a while. :) Maybe I’ll share some of the results (the above design wasn’t done in pastel, but in Adobe Illustrator). Hope you’re all having a lovely December so far!

Gotta mention: until December 14th… $5 off each item + FREE worldwide shipping on anything in my Society6 store! Must use link: http://society6.com/karengadient?promo=F3BRFQTHCC4Z

I attempted a few versions of this one, but it still didn’t quite come out the way I’d imagined. All the same, I’ve got an art marathon to complete, so here she goes. :) Hope you’ve all had a good weekend!
