I Have Fallen in Love! ... with ACEO's

My love of pan pastel has increased 10-fold.  I was introduced to the world of aceo's a number of years ago.  Little did I realize how compulsive creating this little guys would get until I started using my PanPastels on them.  A lengthy peruse of ebay's aceo category hooked me completely.  I not only want to create them - I want to collect them.

Finding a way to capture the beauty of the colors of these little gems has proven challenging - but I'm working on it.  I've got one up as a test run on ebay, so we'll see what happens.  With 100 Bristol board cards at my disposal - I think I'm gonna be busy for quite a while!  

Learning to Master PanPastel

Oh, the feeling I get when the "all done" button pops up when I'm working on a  painting or a drawing.  I think I've always looked for the in put of others on anything I do.  Drawing seems to be the one exception.  I draw and paint to please me - and no one else.  It's done when I know it's done.  As I work with PanPastel, I have had some disasters - and a few triumphs as I learn.  That satisfied feeling when I look at one of my drawings and feel that I couldn't have possibly done that is so rewarding for me.

Now, I'm no Rembrandt, Picasso, Michelangelo or (fill in the blank), but I do know when I have done a good job for me.  This is my latest PanPastel creation and I'm quite happy with it.

The world at large may not care for it ... but I love it.  Which is why I draw and paint to begin with!
