Santa Marta

"Ante tu altar me postro, gloriosa Santa Marta, para bendecir a Dios que se dignoó atesorar en tu alma gracías especíales."  Before your altar I kneel, glorious Saint Marta, to bless God who choose to bestow on your soul special graces.

This is the final project for the drawing class.  I missed a lot of class time and don't think I'll have time to finish all of it, but I did want to present a final project as it's worth two grades.  Again with the self portrait.  This semester I chose to do a self portrait with objects.  Those of you who know me well will 'get' all the objects I've included.  

It's in pastel on canson mi tienes, 17.5 x 23.5 inches.  Now, I'm going to spend the next hour cutting a mat for it!

    Hi,

    You've managed to achieve some realistic textures and transparencies, especially on Cason.
    I never got along well with that paper.

    Reagards,

    José
