This is a pastel painting I did after recently visiting the Myakka River State Park in FL. It was from a photo I took from an area looking out over the water. I actually did two pastel paintings of this scene, one a little more detailed and one a little less detailed. I cannot decide which I prefer.Myakka River State Park

Lemon Bay at DuskThis was a pastel painting I created of Lemon Bay at dusk from a photo I took from my home. I loved the colors of the sky and reflection on the water in the bay.

Lemon Bay I painted this painting of Lemon Bay, which is located in Englewood, FL. This was from a photo I took just a few moments prior to a coming storm. I chose to paint it in pastels. I wanted to just paint what I saw without all the details. I am going to paint this scene again at a different time of day. I think I am liking creating mood paintings.

Lemon Bay at SunsetThis was the second pastel in a series I decided to do of lemon Bay, FL. This is a view from my home in Englewood, FL. It was painted from a photo I took after a storm. Very simple, just recording what was there without details.
