Break Time

February 17, 2018

My pastel painting “Break Time” received an Honorable Mention award in the the North Port Art Center’s juried show “Life in the Pond.” This painting was of a turtle resting on some broken branches that fell into the pond. I thought it was interesting that the branches were partially submerged under water and that the turtle was almost camouflaged on the branch sticking out of the water.

Hibiscus 1

This was a hibiscus flower in my garden that I painted with watercolor. I enjoyed it so much that I painted another one too. The size of the painting un-matted is 4 1/2×6 1/2 and matted 11×14.

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.

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

Pastels

I love birch trees, and the contrast of the white trees against the Autumn landscape inspired me to create this pastel.
