BOOKMARK THIS PAGE
I'm gonna be honest, this area has my heart and my attention. Connie Solera, a fun and incredible artist, shared all her wisdom for working with oil pastels, soft pastels, graphite, charcoal and more while attending the Fearless Sedona Artist Retreat. I got hooked. During the retreat I was urged to step outside of my normal "musey-like" woman style paintings and jump into color fields and working with oil pastels.
At first I was a little grumbly, thinking, wait I'm creating a piece I want for use on my website as a title page. Connie was like, "Work? Stop working. You're at a retreat. Start exploring!" So I did, and... well, I'm gonna have to give all the credit to Connie for giving me that loving, gentle shove outside of my complacent box.
