about 10 x10 pastel and frozen watercolor on Uart paper $100.
Today the reservoir was in a blue, frozen beauty mood, a happy blue. I posted the wild underpainting to show you what my pastel worked with. Cool, eh? It was a happy accident, frozen watercolor melted by the car's heater. I was asked to say more about visualizing. I feel it helps me, even before I see the reservoir that day, to see my aim. The cold happy blue of the morning was the aim today. I am sure it helps that I know the reservoir intimately. I always get another gift when I see the way she (the reservoir I am certain is a she) looks that day.
On another note, I bet you were wondering about the title. Today a young artist, Jake, and his Mom stopped by to visit. They have passed by everyday for months and Jake , a four and a half year old (an age guess) budding artist, has felt a kinship with me. It was great to speak with him and see his light. So this is for him, my young artist friend. reach for your dreams and you can not fail.
