Weekly Photo Challenge: Mine

Being a mother there are not many ‘things’ that are ‘mine’. As mothers we are socialised to be selfless, and ‘mine’ implies a level of possession and selfishness – not necessarily in a bad way. Being selfish is a survival mechanism, but as mums your instinct – which is reinforced by societal conditioning – is to protect your kids first. So I had to think about this challenge, and what I consider to be MINE!!

So here it is : HANDS OFF MY PASTELS!

  1. You know… I just fell in love with these Portfolio Oil Pastels recently. I have only worked with Senillier Oil Pastels (love the variety of colors) but these Portfolio are so versatile being water sols and soooo creamy! Yeah… I get it… MINE! 🙂

  3. Dawn, I really enjoyed this – it brought back very find memories of my grandmother buying me a set of oil pastels as my first “art” present way back. Only thing is, I’ve never felt I’ve mastered using them! Such a difficult and unforgiving medium, yet can yield such beautiful finished drawings. Cheers!

    • Hey there… yes i agree. I have been drawing with pastels everyday now for seventy eight days, & I have seen an improvement. Its also about understanding the medium, but its been good!
