ART OF THE MONTH

May 2021

This pastel artwork made me think of a path, I never thought I would get on. The concept of zentangle, shape, form, and basic elements of design can make a dynamic piece. I feel like I want to strengthen this concept!

"All life, peace" Pastel Art

ART OF THE MONTH

April 2021

As I got comfortable with the Sennelier pastels, I took it to the next level with my current skills in art. I wanted this image to have a sense of zentangle and the symbolic image it holds. The color, shapes, line, and form all tell a story, which makes this one of my first pastel favorites!
