Earlier I said I would update my progress on the fifty oils. A few weeks ago I passed the halfway point. Here are a few of the paintings (with pastels on the walls and easel in the background) ready to be photographed. Today I am starting number twenty-nine, so I am feeling good about making my goal! Try not to laugh at my tiny studio. Okay, laugh if you must. Fine. [singlepic=90,320,240,,] I've been making some canvas panels and later this week I will go through the process a bit. They make a great surface, especially for me as a pastellist. Oils seem to behave in an almost pastel-like fashion on them.
