This is a favorite Smudge piece of mine. I created it early in my Smudging days. I cropped an area from the sky and using it in the master head of my "Smudge Blog". Besides my oil pastel works I also write articles for a local magazine about Art and Culture, create works in Calligraphy lettering, solicit guest speakers for the Latimer Art Club in Reno, NV, illustrate Adult Coloring eBooks, was involved with the Nevada Inventors Association for over 10 years, received several grants and awards, plus share how to Make Art Your Business and life on another site I manage. If you wish to read more about me please visit my primary site: varyCarol.com. I enjoy watching and experiencing where my love of creating art takes me. There is more to come! Thank you for your interest in Oil Pastel Smudge, Sincerely!
Thank you Cheryl S. Reno, NV
"Carol's Oil Pastel Smudge work has that something extra. A unique blend of color. A professionalism I can surly appreciate. Your work is lovely, beautiful! It is so seldom you see something this unique. Thank you!" ...and thank you Cheryl! You made my day!
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!
