I managed to get this posted on Daily Painter Originals, but missed my blog. This 6x6, is pastel on Pastelbord from Ampersand. It has a much more even texture than the hand textured boards I did on the last 3 posts. I like working on these hard surfaces. Mainly because in the end it is easier to pop them into frames. I still need a spacer and glass, but it goes together much easier and handling is easier as well. The pastel seems to stay put and I am getting uses to the sound of applying the pastel to the surface. That might sound funny, but it is important to feel comfortable. Soft surfaces make one sound and hard surfaces make another. When I work there is a rhythm that happens, almost like music. It feels tribal and I love how sound inspires me. Sound creates movement. That for me inspires creativity. I find art is completely sensory and good music, sounds, rhythm, vision and beautiful movements are important as I create.
