We have about wrapped up our pastel lessons with good friend, Barb. Right after we finished the top painting Barb adopted a rescue dog who needed lots of TLC, so we missed several weeks
of practice especially since we left all our materials over at Barb's studio.
Finally her dog seemed to be settling down, so I went over to finish up the last painting and pick up our materials.
As you can see we have been working on dramatic skies using Utube videos. I still find I don't quite get pastels, but I think I am improving. But before I forget how to watercolor, I need to get back to my old medium. I have found that I do not have any fall watercolor paintings left. Seems they have all sold. There is a message there somewhere that I should heed.

|This is my first pastel attempt, In case you can't tell, it is a Utah scene with storm clouds over the canyon. I have a long way to go.|
|This quilt is another project. The top photo is a sample of the squares. There are 30 squares, each different,|
There is a green border added to the blue one now. I am hoping to quilt this on my sewing machine. Wish me luck.

|Autumn Quakie Study|
I have let my domain name go, but I am still on at bobbiejohnsonart.blogspot.com.
Anyway, painting is happening sporadically, and lately I have been playing with different styles and seasons of Quakies, (or Aspen as you may know them by).
