Pan Pastels…

I snapped this photo of my nephew, Cooper at the Crabtree Cabin last Summer.

At the time, Cooper was just learning to walk. I loved to watch him discover the feel of rocks and grass under his feet. As he walked back and forth he became braver and walked a little faster. So, so sweet.

I used Pan Pastels on both of these layouts. I need to experiment with Pan Pastels more…one of my goals this year is to get more comfortable using different mediums. I might try a bit of water color too. My mom and I are thinking of taking the Junelle Jacobson workshop (Scarlet Lime), it looks so fun:

The Art of Wild Abandonment

These photos were taken two years ago…Dan with his parents.

I hope that your new year is off to a great start (I’m finally getting Christmas put away).

Love the fresh start that comes with a new year.

Take care,
