Muse is home.....I hope!

My muse has spent much of the summer on vacation, but I think she may have finally come home!  My birthday is coming up and my husband Gil is getting me a pastel box.  I'm really excited about it because I've wanted one for some time now.  I was going to get one from Dakota, but decided on the Degas Pastel Box instead.  It's a little cheaper and I like the size.  Not as big as Dakota's largest, but bigger than their mid-size.  Once I get it, I will probably replace the foam with memory foam.  And since it was less expensive, I was able to get a few new pastels as well!  Always a good thing!  I plan to spend much of the weekend arranging it.  I'll probably do it by values.

So in anticipation of my new box, I finally got a little dusty last night.  This is a 5"x7" on claybord that is covered with Colourfix Primer.  Nothing special, but it was good to be painting again.

And an early happy birthday to you Deb. My birthday is next week but I didn't ask for anything as exciting as a pastel set.

Great piece. You obviously know your way around the pastel box.

Thanks Pat! It felt good to get going again.

Randi, thanks for the BD wishes. What day is yours? Mine is on Labor Day. Hopefully the new pastel box will help me with my values.
