Jazz and Pastels

 Here are a couple of pastels I drew while listening to Mago Herrera at Dazzle.



There is just something wonderful that happens while listening to live jazz.  I just let the sounds inspire the colors and shapes.


If anyone is interested, I can offer these for sale.  Because they are oil-pastels, I will have to mat and frame these under glass.


Both pieces are 11 x 15.

"Orchids" and "Stained Glass Glow" oil pastel on paper, each 11x15

 Here I am experimenting with some oil pastels.  I enjoy blending and playing with the colors.  Let me know what you think of these efforts.  If I'm not writing, I love playing with colors in different ways.  Oil pastels are "faster" to work with, and not as much mess to clean up when you are done.  But I still get to express my creativity.
