Pound Puppy

May 8, 2017

Isn’t she just the cutest? I saw this Puppy at the pound and just had to paint her picture! Lucky for me I don’t go there often or I would want to adopt every dog. 

This was done with hard and soft pastels on Uart 500 paper.

Here are my two latest pastel paintings. The one on the left is from Jekyll Island, GA. A painting of the trees with Spanish moss hanging from them. The painting on the right is from the island across from the Boca Grande causeway in FL.

Last summer we kayaked through this water and into and through the Mangroves! It was a wonderful experience!

Sunlit Peters Lake

This is the second of this path done at Peters Lake in pastel. I just love the way the sunlight was hitting this spot. I keep trying to capture it better .img_0070

Arizona Cactus

February 15, 2017

IMG_0058.JPGSaw this cactus on a trail walk “the loop” in Sedona, Arizona this past year. Just loved the colors, shadows, and scenery. I wanted to paint this and decided to do a pastel with a watercolor under painting. I am pleased with how it turned out!

Completed Weekend Workshop

Just finished a very fun, but intense two day workshop with artist, Karen Margulis in Florida. She is a great teacher and super artist! We learned so much and now I have to put onto paper what I learned. Here are 3 of my pastels:
