Hubbard Revised

"Hubbard Revised" 14 x 11 pastel on gatorboard

Day 27 — I have been working on a pet portrait commission all day. I can't post until I give to the client (tomorrow?) so I wanted to show something. The image on the left is an older painting. It was dull and boring and hiding in my flat file.

I took it out and decided to look at the box of pastels and pick whatever colors I felt like using and just play. Sometimes you just have to try stuff (right image). It's not there yet, but it's out of the drawer.

At about 5:00 PM I looked out the window of my studio, and BAM— now that's a painting!
