Pastel 90 - Light on Whippoorwill


Strange, secretive birds.  I haven't heard one in years - I miss the sound.

Pastel, ball point, and Sharpie on 18 x 24 inch kraft paper.

Pastel 89 - Playing with the Dogs


Neighbors of ours own a toothy dachshund with the soul of a mastiff; I think Malcolm influenced this one...

Pastel 87 - Not Sure...


I feel like there is a lot going on here, but I channel it without comment.

Some house remodeling slowed the Pastels for a few weeks - they've started up again this weekend.

Pastel 86 - Facing Down the Sumo Rats


This is one of the few times I've used black - I generally prefer to use a blue, purple or dark brown to represent black.  But I needed the gritty, sooty feel for this one.

As usual - this was a surprise to me, starting with the rat faces and the big bellied body of the rat in the foreground.

Pastel 85 - Barn Animals


Once again, I do not know how it happens, but the pony, with folded legs, and the goat were just "there" in the blind drawn pen lines.  I added the duck and the rabbit.

Pastel 84 - Spider in Love


This feels like something I would have drawn as a kid...  but I don't edit or turn away whatever comes along.
