Tiger, pastels on strathmore pastel paper

I haven’t written a lot lately. I’ve had many appts and tire easily. I am supposed to return to work next week and that has me on edge. Only a few hours to start but it doesn’t matter. I have a mix of wanting to go back to work and being extremely anxious.

So I’ve been painting about one a day now to help with the nerves. It does help. It keeps me grounded and is always in my control. I improve with each drawing and I like that. Although truthfully I will be halfway through and believe it’s a disaster or I can’t do it. Layers later, it starts to appear. Slow process, but that’s exactly what I need.

And tomorrow is another day, and I know what I want to paint, bought the paper today 🙂
