'Empress' Pencil & Pastel. 2012

Happy mid-week everyone!
Finally got a free minute to edit this lovely lady I completed about a month ago! I've been flying all over the U.S.A, from L.A to Kansas, Chicago then New York! 
Then home to NZ to move houses - phew. 
So haven't had a moment to start my next piece but it's up there, brewing away in my little brain. So until my next lot of progress pics, stay tuned for some inspirational artists I flick up whilst I'm browsing around.

Christer Karlstad. Another gem from Europe, Norwegian born contemporary figurative artist, studied at The Norwegian National Academy of Fine Arts and Glasgow School of Art. His works are categorized as 'staged mysticism' - I love that term! Each work is like a frozen story needing to be explored.
