Life: One and Two



I did these pastel paintings about six years ago in college. They were my final assignment in Drawing III class. The rules, create a series of two using items picked out of a grab bag for inspiration. I’d never done a series before and I’d never used pastels. Needless to say, I was a little anxious about how things were going to turn out.



As you can see, I picked a candle and a roll of ribbon. The pastels I used were Rembrandt Soft Half Pastels that we were required to buy for the class. I really don’t know how the work came together in my mind. The candle made me think of time and wind. I did a few thumbnails and everything seemed to just fall together. I decided to draw a picture of life.
