New Colored Pencil Artwork Breast Cancer Awareness and Updates

Hey Everybody!
It's been a while since my last blog post. I have been so busy working around the house trying to get things situated and doing some deep cleaning before school starts back up again for me on the 29th I really haven't had a lot of time to draw as of late. I have a week left of vacation.  Also during the summer time, I managed to crash two laptops. Lost some of my stuff, but fortunately, I had most of the important files backed up. So, I have been without a computer most of the summer. I just got my new laptop this week and I am very happy with it. It seems to be able to handle all the adobe software quite well.
We had a great time down at Depoe Bay and Newport Oregon for our vacation in August. So much to see and do. Love watching the whales and checking out the lighthouses.

Work In Progress
Here is my latest work in progress "Slave No More." I might change the title of this piece. It's not quite coming out like the way I was envisioning it. It's been a challenge to create and capture what I was envisioning. The idea behind this piece is the sea is parting, a pillar of cloud is behind her and the woman is one of the Israelites that God has led out of Egypt. I still have a bit more to do on this piece. I am taking a two-day break from it and to see what areas need more work on and how I will finish it up.

Medium: Color Pencil, Watercolor Pencil and White Gel Ink


Updates
Now that I have a computer again I can start working on my website. I have so many ideas for designing it that I have learned in class. I am so eager and excited to start working on it.
Also, I have a bunch new listings of artwork for sale now available at my Etsy Store http://mooresart.etsy.com/

Hope you all have a blessed weekend!
Happy Creating Everyone!
