Baby Feet 👣 and Pastels

I stumbled onto pastels. I’d always admired the glowing colors I’d seen other artists achieve. Plus they are small and easy to carry, with no water needed.

Figuring I could steal a few moments to myself, I jumped into exploring this new medium.

Here are a few of my early paintings. It’s the “birth” of a new medium for me.
