Mad Sam

Mad Sam, soft pastel on Tiziano cream, 180x230mm (7x9 in.)

You know how restless you can be when you are waiting for an important phone call and have to hang around waiting for the phone to ring? I've been a bit under the weather the last week, and was only managing some ink sketches. But this afternoon I HAD to do pastels, waiting for this phone call. Making art keeps me sane. Found a picture of one of my grandsons when he was a toddler, with an expression that mirrored the frustration I was feeling. Got his head done (that face took time), and then I added some surround to frame him. Not sure I'm finished with this one yet.

Still haven't got that phone call. But I have started another painting!
