On being Ruthless to be Kind
8 1/2 x 10 1/2 Pastel $100.00
This pastel is a re-worked version of a previous post. After trying to flatten the warped paper it was drawn on I succeeded in smudging the pastel and was forced to toss it in the garbage or have at it again. Being part Scotsman and Ukrainian I have a tendency to scrinch and save whenever possible so I opted to introduce the colour I was observing outside my studio window in an effort to save it. I am happier with this result, what about you? Seems appropriate to resurrect something dead in the spring of the year, ie; being ruthless to be kind.
