Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

Day Three of Thirty

"The Lone in Winter"
Original pastel on blue paper
Approximately 12"x10", unframed

Alternate titles for this could be "Winter", "Naked", or "Somebody Give That Girl a Sweater". What would you name this one?

Thank you Diana for the nice comment on my latest blog post. I've heard your name mentioned before but had never been to your blog ... your work is amazing. I will return for sure. I loved looking at both your charcoal work as well as your 'cloud' works. Beautiful.
Again, thank you for your kind comment.

SO beautifully painted, Diana.
I'm so bad with titles...I can't think of a good one!!!!

Diana Moses Botkin said...

Hi Nancy! Thank you for visiting here and leaving your encouragement. I'm glad I looked at your blog so we could see each others' work!

Brad, thanks so much!

Hilda, I think titles are quite a puzzle sometimes. Finding just the right is often a challenge.

Hi Diana,
I meant to write you as soon as this image popped into my mailbox. It is stunning! Of all the figures so far out of your 30, this one is my favorite - and I like your title best, too.

Diana Moses Botkin said...

Cyndy, I am very interested to know that this one is your favorite so far!

I've had an especially good time with several of these, figuring (no pun intended... really!) out something different to do, day by day for the challenge of 30 this month.

Thank you for dropping in my blog to tell me your thoughts. It's very good to hear from you.
