Sepia Evening

Sepia Evening - Pastel 9 x 12

Had a great couple of days in Aline Ordman's PSNH workshop at the Wild Salamander Creative Arts Center in Hollis, NH. I produced this painting that I wanted to keep working on but decided to go along with the class consensus to leave it alone. So, it is signed as is...

First Color of Spring

First Color of Spring - Pastel 9 x 12

Winters are long in New England and we long for any glimpse of color as the first sign of spring. The forsythia in my backyard is usually the first one to deliver.

Nature's Gift of Gold

Nature's Gift of Gold - Pastel 16 x 20

I photographed, cataloged or sold my last winter paintings. This last one is from an extraordinary 20 minutes of pure gold over our orchard after a storm. An unforgettable moment of pure beauty! 

Time to honor spring and paint color!

Frigid Air

Frigid Air - Pastel 11 x 14

I try to walk everyday, even in winter. I do make exception when it is 5 degrees Fahrenheit with a windchill factor of minus 15... It is wiser to take some quick pictures of the frozen landscape and paint it in the studio.

Smelling the Flowers

Smelling the Flowers - Pastel 10 x 10

Next in my "Street Moments" series. San Miguel is in full bloom in April: pink, red, yellow bougainvillea, purple Jacaranda trees and a multitude of other flowering plants. A feast for the eyes. Lingering behind her companion, this lady seemed to be taking her time to appreciate and smell the flowers...

Daily Walk

Saw this gentleman taking his daily walk a couple of times while I was painting plein air in San Miguel de Allende (Mexico). Same outfit, same pace and his lady not far behind. I will post her next.
