More Really Old Work

Scanning slides of old work has been like time-travelling for me. I have forgotten so much of the stuff I did 30+ years ago. For example, I don't remember doing this drawing, although it was typical of the kind of work I was doing when I was learning how to use pastel long ago. I was trying to loosen up because my painting was very tight at the time. It was fun to just scribble and see what came out of it. Still is! 

I do remember this painting, which I had in a show in Toronto. This was done during a very busy, hopeful time in my life and there are many happy memories associated with it. Amazing how looking at old work is like looking at old family photographs - we shake our heads and say, "My, how I've changed!"
