Created primarily with Pencil by FiftyThree, an early Christmas present from my darling husband, David. I’m really enjoying the Pencil; it’s very comfortable and natural to draw with on the iPad. It’s quickly become my favorite stylus.

Set peace of mind as your highest goal, and organize your life around it.
— Brian Tracy

Although I’ve done other pastel work this week, this doodle-like one had the makings of a good mirrored art piece, so I scanned it and played around. Certainly not as bright as my usual stuff, but I like it and had fun!

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!

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!
