Last night we had our second Artful Arses meeting. The theme this time was PASTELS. I had two ideas as far as what I was going to work on and I have even made sketches ahead of time to make it easier on myself during the meeting. But, of course, between trying to get out of the house on time yesterday morning, feeding the cat, fixing lunch, taking the recyclables out and everything else, I forgot to bring them with me. So then I had to improvise and come up with something, anything else to paint. Here's what I came up with:

Now, off to a four day trip of skiing. You all enjoy your weekend, whatever you end up doing!
