I wish I could say that this is my work, but I can't. This is a piece done by one of my students of Oil Pastel Smudge, Sherry Hunter. She has such a fabulous eye, vision and heart. This piece is my all time favorite of hers. Thank you Sherry for coming into my life and sharing your impression of what a "Smudge" can do! BRAVO!
Your class was so beneficial..... When those creative urges hit me, smudge is the primary outlet of expression. From what Shirley also shared is she is looking at mixing her smudge works with her other favorite medium photography! That sounds intriguing Shirley! Waiting to see what you come up with!
You are my inspiration and I would not be where I am without your love and support! Thank you, Sincerely! Smudge on!!!!
There is an Oil Pastel Smudge piece of a Pumpkin hiding behind all of the neon Graphic shapes!
Something MORE you can do with a "SMUDGE"
Perfect with l leaves as your theme. How to: Start at the top, like 12 on a clock. Next go to 6, 3 then 9. Go round and round and soon you have a great Mandala or Geometric design! Easy peasy!
Reno, NV Sunday, Sept 23 Wilbur D May Arboretum Rancho San Raphael Nature & Art Event & Silent Auction
Being in nature is awe inspiring. This work below will be in the Silent Auction taking place during the event. Visual Artists, Musicians, Poets and Performing Artists will be dispersed among the gardens of fall color. Hope you can make it by to support the May Arboretum Society. Come by my booth, say Hi and see the many images of "Beautiful Birds" I was inspired to create for the event! Happy Fall Everyone!
A finished landscape is shown on the left and the template used shown on the right. If you were to use the same template with the same cut out images your landscape would look completely different! That is what I love most about the technique. We are all different, we all see our world, and portray it in a different way! Smudge on my friends!
