Ike Art - Pastel of Peaches

The remnants of Hurricane Ike came through here yesterday. No power from 5pm on, they said it may be days before everyone's power is back. I work 3 miles from home, and luckily (??) they have power, so I came in, since obviously there is nothing to do at home.

After my power went out, I decided to try to work on this pastel with the light from the windows. I kept adding brighter colors because it looked so dull in the dim light. Looks pretty good today. Guess that is one way of getting used to actually seeing the lights and darks in your composition!
