Pastel, 9 x 12 inches
This pastel is not finished but I am finished with it. Yesterday I had a violently bad reaction to some sealant or finishing chemical the next door neighbors were using and have felt poisoned ever since. I just can't hack any more work with the pastels.
This week I learned that I should be wearing a mask and to never blow the loose pastel pigment off the paper. I donned gloves and took the paper outside to blow the surface but I don't expect to be wearing a mask to do artwork any time soon. Like, ever.
I wouldn't usually post something unfinished but this feels like the finish of a pastel chapter. At least for now.
Just as I decided to turn my attention locally, I received an invite to travel. More on that later...
