Art Paintings with Pastels

Category: Art / Creative
Description
I have several original paintings with Pastels. I used to Dance Balley at a young age and I drew a few Ballerinas because I felt it was still in me as I was growing up. I also painted other objects and things such as A duck on the water with reflection on the water as it swam, and a Piccaso like painting of a guitar with fruits and very abstract materials in the back ground with bright vivid colors.

Digital Art

Category: Art / Creative
Description
I loved working with the computer to create some digital art work that I still have. I enjoyed this class very much. I then realized it was not the same as painting with a paint brush. I continued with painting instead, but I very much like this form as well.
