Art Journal:
This Abstract, "Energy" is my first attempt using chalk pastel only.
I just didn't feel secure enough to work without my pencils & charcoal until I did this piece. It started as a practice sheet and very early on something took over and I abandoned control and just went with it. If you click on the image the larger resolution will show, take a second and just let your eyes and mind get absorbed into the color, you will be surprized at some of the things you see, most of them I did not put in there, it is just the way it came out. At first I didn't think people would like it, but I was amazed at the positive feedback I got. "Energy" is the perfect name for it because as I started to draw & slash with the pastels, using both hands and grabbing different colors at random, I felt almost electrified!
