I passed my art final.

That’s tongue-in-cheek. Nobody fails Bruce’s Introduction to Pastels class, gets graded or judged in any way. He encourages all of us to find ourselves AND lose ourselves in our art.

As I mentioned in my March 3rd post painting with pastels, he conferred an Artistic License on each of us.

I am not particularly good at colors, shades, contrasts, non-obective art, and, well, any of it. I do, however, enjoy spending time right-brain-ing it; moving out of the puritanical world I often immerse myself in.

Moreover, I recognize that only by exercising the medium and my left brain will I improve any of those areas where I am weak.

Following my final class, I vow to make painting and drawing a party of my life.

Here is the still life that was my final exam.
