More Rust Removal

I'm still working on knocking the rust off.  I've never done much with pastels, that is working loosely with them.  I've always admired pastel artists and love the way they can layer the colors.  So, what the heck, why not?  Eventually, the rust removal should be complete and I may learn something new along the way.

Knocking the Rust Off

I'm still getting back into the swing of being in the studio.  I played around with my conté crayons, trying to "knock the rust off" my "art brain" for a bit, this afternoon.  I worked from a photo in one of my books and made the face up.  I think I might be getting the gears moving again ☺

Procrastination Central

One week into the new year and I'm having trouble getting "back in the saddle, again".  I've done all the procrastinating I can do - I've taken down Christmas decorations, I've cleaned up my studio, I've made lists of goals and exhibitions/competitions I want to enter this year... I even found my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project - which by the way, has to be postmarked by January 31st.  Yikes!  So what's my problem?  What keeps me glued to whatever flotsam that wafts by and away from actually starting my work?  I even know what I want to start on!  It's almost like my brain doesn't remember how good it feels once I start working on my artwork.  I need a swift kick in the rear to get moving!  Anybody wearing some steel-toed boots?

Okay, that's it! Back to the studio and see if anything starts moving...
