This painting is how I feel when my computer is being stupid (operator error, no doubt!) or my dog doesn’t come when I call (what’s so interesting about kids walking along the back fence?) or the Detroit Tigers blow a three run lead in the 8th inning (I know I live in Florida now, but I’ll always be a Michigan girl).

GRR, Wave Portrait No. 134, 5×7″ pastel on UArt paper by Marie Marfia.

I used a medium gray pastel and alcohol for an underpainting and deliberately left it as the sky in this painting. I think I’d like to do the next one with bright yellow. I’m thinking of calling this series, “The Moody Blue.” What do you think?
