Studio Hands


Studio Friday
This is a pastel covered hand-a.k.a. my drawing hand. My fingernails are usually dirty. I do try to clean them, but there always seems to be some residual grit that I just cant seem to get out. Ah the life of an artist...Always creating but never clean!

Ha! So true...I am a very messy painter too. My hsuband complains I have paint on every piece of clothing I own, heehee. Its true, I should wear an apron or something.

This piece in the background is beautiful. I really, really like your work. So full of color and life and energy. Excellent!

Ohhh nice - you have the 'good pastels'. I am so envious.... the kind that are so soft that they melt like butter on the paper. Beautiful bright work!!

I don't know that it would be possible to paint or draw or really "do" any kind of art without getting something messy on our hands!

Great post.

Love that splash of colour!
All too often we forget to appreciate our most precious tools; our hands! We so SO MUCH with them yet give them little or no thought. I think today's entry for Studio Friday is a great tribute to recognise that which enables us to create! Have a great weekend! I look forward to next Friday's journey!!

Your pastel drawings all look so beautiful! I love the colors you use! I have drawn a few pastels myself, but I don´t dare to do that at home because of all that colorful dust... I´m afraid it will settle everywhere *lol*. Ah, and the feeling of the dust on my fingers sometimes gives me goosebumps...brrr. Hee, hee.
