Pastels just feel so natural. Get your fingers into the colors, dust, papers, blending. So tactile. I can’t tell you how many times I washed my hands here, but more than I would even with Covid-19 lurking around . . . . !
Boy, I do need to clean up my desk! Pens, crumpled paper, all pushed up to the side so that I can drink coffee and read the news. As a morning sketch or painting seems to be emerging as part of the daily routine, I looked around. There they were . . . and here they are.
I’m not always a slob, but from Monday to Thursday, working 10-hour days, who has time to do much cleaning?
