Missed Day

I didn't get to paint yesterday. This weekend is nutty, my son is moving back home after having an apartment with his friends, we had planned to have people over last night (all day really) to play board games, and to top things off I have a ton of typing to do.  If I'm honest, if I'd gotten up early yesterday I could have found time to paint (which is why Thursday's Artists Helping Artists was inspirational for me.. morning is my best time to paint too but I don't get up at 5 am.), but I didn't. 

Fortunately, one day last week I decided to play with pastels a bit and came up with this still life of a bottle of Chaucer's mead and one of the beautiful steel goblets we got as a wedding gift from our wedding party... we had an amazing Renaissance-themed wedding :)

Not sure I like pastels, but maybe I just haven't found the key to get them to do what I want them to do.
