6x6, soft pastel
While painting, I was dialing (and redialed 156 times no less) to make hotel reservations for the International Association of Pastel Society's 2017 convention next year. I was persistent and redialed repeatedly because the rooms are snatched up really really fast for that particular convention. I feel very lucky to have gotten one of the last rooms available.
In addition to that, I was listening to the Senate Banking Committee members grill Mr. John Stumpf (Wells Fargo) for well over 2 hours regarding the recent banking "scandal" at Wells. I won't even go into my feelings about that....but given the intensity of their interrogation, my painting took on an intense life of it's own.
