the eleventh hour

The painting of my second acrylic-turned-pastel was interrupted by a couple things but I finally got back to it today. It has been wiped off, washed off, oil-painted on and brushed with alcohol. I even sprayed it with Windex...the bottle was sitting there and I was desperate. The next time I try to turn an acrylic into a pastel painting, I will do it by turning the board OVER and prepping the backside! This painting should be called "Instead of Yoga" because I missed my yoga class today to finish it so I could get it off my easel and out of my brain. Click on the image to see more texture.


  1. You go girl! Windex..i love it. You are going exciting places with your explorations!

  2. You are crazy! This is one of my favorites that I've seen so far - and you can't wait to get it off your easel??? I love the dreamy atmosphere - just enough familiarity to suggest a moment from a memory or dream (or nightmare - lol!).

    I'm much more likely to remember works that are unusual and not so literal and representational. Yours are inspiring. Now I want to play around with pastels on different grounds and get off the computer.
