April in the Netherlands
Pastel 10 x 10

Taking a break from painting snow. I have been feeling a great need for color in these recent dreary winter days. No better painting subject than the most amazing blazes of color that cover the landscape of the Netherlands in April. I photographed these yellow tulip rows while on the train from Amsterdam to Amersfoort.

The Red Barn

The Red Barn - Pastel 8 x6

Day 5 of the ART + WORK + LIVING  5 day challenge. 
The subject may have been a little too ambitious for this 20 minutes marathon, but I made it (after a couple of wipe offs)! I find the daily 20-30 minutes exercise very helpful to build confidence, loosen up and overcoming the dreaded painter's block. I am committed to keeping up the routine....

At the End of Madigan Lane #2

At the End of Madigan Lane #2
Pastel 8 x 6

Day 2 of the ART + WORK + LIVING  5 day challenge sponsored by Mary Gilkerson. I am keeping with the theme of painting my street to build muscle memory. This one is from a different angle and more intense sky. I was tempted to add the phone poles on the left for added movement but decided to stop just before the alarm went off. It took 29 minutes. We'll see if I can achieve a 20 minutes painting by day 5....
