My good friend Linda Sinclair stopped by the Oil Pastel Smudge booth at the Reno ART Fest on the River this last weekend. She is the wonderful woman who helped me in editing the Oil Pastel Smudge Booklet many of you received at the Oil Pastel Smudge workshop held through CHA/AFCI. And...the booklet was funded by the Nevada State Arts Council & The (NEA) National Endowment for the Arts! Thanks Lindar and every past student that stopped by the booth to say hello! Oil Pastel Smudge YEAH!!!!!
The images below are my entry into the City of Reno's People's Choice Award, to take place on the weekend of August 19 and 20th at the Reno ART Fest. I was juried in as 1 of 60 local and national artist's to have original art in this weekend show and sale. One of the 60 artist's will have their work voted in and purchased by the City of Reno. Hoping to see you at the show! Please vote for my entry triptych titled: The Moon, the Clouds and the Sun
Give this idea a try and send it my way. Unfortunately the student didn't sign this piece. So be sure to sign yours!
This is fabulous! I am so proud of you. You and all my students have so beautifully taken the concept I have shared with you and taken it to new heights and visions. B R A V O ! Smudge on! And send in your works to share, please.

A GREAT way to create a valentine's card for that special "Everyone!" WE LOVE OIL PASTEL SMUDGE!
The same hand cut template created the last image and this one too! Save this template for Springtime leaves too, simply change the color scheme! How easy is that? Smudge on......
WORKING ON A DIFFERENT COLORED PAPER RATHER THEN WHITE HAS AN AMAZING EFFECT! LOVE HOW THE GREEN GLOWS REMEMBER TO ADD LIGHT COLORS TO DARK PAPERS.
