Oil Pastel Landscape

My first few hours in the studio for quite some time this quiet Sunday afternoon! I'm missing just coming in here whenever I like... my day job is taking up more and more of my time. I'm still enjoying it very much but will have even less time as I pick up an extra day/week as of this week..... The kids are away (going to Europe for 5 weeks with their Dad- lucky things!) So, it's just me and hubby and my beautiful wee Cee Cee (and the rest of the menagerie of course)...
I had a play around with my scrap/sketchbook and drew this small oil pastel landscape based on a trimming from the bottom edge of a magazine clipping I glued in. It wasn't a landscape but certainly had the feel of one....

I haven't posted any art or textile work on here for quite some time and feel a little guilty! Hopefully I'll be able to spend some more time in here on Tuesday!

Your landscape is very appealing. I like tall and thin at the moment. It would be wonderful translated into stitch!

I'm always bowled over with your colorful pastels. Do you ever exhibit them? They have such a feel for the Autralian landscape, at least, as I imagine it. I agree these would would translate well to cloth, but, equally, stand in their own right. Hope you do some more soon! Wish you didn't have to go to work and had more time to do some more! ;) I find myself in sympathy with that particular dillema more and more these days. Hope you're well!
