Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Wishing you health, peace and happiness for you and yours!
So, I have 3 new small works, “Reds” 9x12", “S is for Shelter” 8x10" and “P is for Pinocchio” 8x11". All pastel pencils and pastel sticks on Pastelmat. I am not working as fast as I would like. For starters I am struggling with depression, and also my autoimmune dissease has woken up and gives me joint pains that make painting harder. This winter sucks. Coronavirus scares me.
Anyway, I hope that you like my new work and also I wish you happy holidays! I really hope 2021 to be a great year for all of us.
The wooden lustre on Pinoccio looks superb, and I love your reproductions of cartoon comic strip, with the folds and perspective all looking amazing. Sorry to hear you’re having such a rough time Irene, though I am very pleased to see you are still managing to produce great work - and yes let us hope for a much improved 2021!
Thank you Martin for your kind comments about my work. Always nice hearing your opinion. You didn’t comment about “Reds”. The Ace gave me hard time, I should have tried harder with the Alfa and the hearts. They are tiny and got me frustrated. First time I draw a card. Next time I am gonna use colored pencil rather than pastel pencil.
Well, lots of people feel the way I do these days. I am trying to be optimistic about things, today is a new day.

Reds is fine! I certainly wasn’t drawn to anything you had trouble with there - and the marble steals the show in that one for me
Good to know! Thanks so much!
Great work Irene! Surfaces look spectacular!
Thank you for your kind comment dear Nanci
I love your work- very skilled and great compositions, you never disappoint!!
Thanks so much, Tracy! I appreciate your lovely comment.
Beautiful work Irene—I agree with Martin especially—the wooden Pinocchio looks absolutely superb!
Thank you so much for your comment Anthony! Much appreciated.
Amazing work, especially loved the ‘red’.
Thank you Craig, I am glad you enjoy my new ones.
Amazing work. For me, the folded comic strip really takes the cake!
