I drew this with pastel sticks which are pigments bound together with something such as gum arabic, or glue, or ???. I have practiced "painting" with them as it is called though I prefer painting with a brush. Sunrises and sunsets are some of my favorite scenes to photograph or try to paint. I never feel as if I capture the emotion of the sunsets or sunrises. This is on 8 1 xx cardstock paper that was that gorgeous melon color to begin with. Cardstock is very similar to bristol board but smaller in size. I signed this with an oil pencil that because it will write over pastels. Copyrighted.

This is my selfie in spring 2014 but I look the same except thinner and my hair is longer. I still put my hair in lop-sided pony-tail when I walkabout or paint to prevent hair from getting into my eyes, or into my paints or inks.
