I'm here!!! Yay! First thing I did was stop at Dakota Pastels (the shrine...more about that in another post). With Robyn's help I replaced all my tiniest mystery shards with new big exactly-matching pastels. Yay! Next I headed out to my field on Whidbey Island. This year I am early enough and they haven't mowed it. Strange I feel like I have to get to know it again. Paint it more to understand its nuances. Sort of like when you are away from a friend for a long time.
This time the underpainting is better than the pastel... as they say hinesight is 20-20. (I admitted it PB)
Oh well...have to to some sleep. Losing 3 hours, but yet still wanting to get up early is a challenge! Thank you everyone for all your kind comments I will make time to answer them tomorrow!
