Watch your Back!

Watch your Back!
Pastel 8 x 10

Couldn't wait to play with my newly acquired Terry Ludwig "Best Blues" and "Stunning Yellows" and chose to try them on the most ubiquitous and most photographed inhabitants of Key West: roosters. These multicolored, strutting wild creatures are seen all over town and always provide free entertainment during my visits there!

Cottonwoods in Zion

Cottonwoods in Zion
Pastel 3 x 4

 A few weeks ago, I challenged myself to paint 30 miniatures to be executed fast on left over pieces of Wallis paper. I have really enjoyed the process and I have nine more to go before the year is over. This small piece of cottonwoods in fall attire is from my hiking trip in Zion this last October.
