Marsh After the Rain

Marsh After the Rain - Pastel 6 x 9

This was done as an online demonstration for a student new to pastels. We explored it step by step: wet underpainting, layering, adjusting and correcting. It may still benefit from a couple of small adjustments... or not.

Reaching Out

Reaching Out - Pastel 8 x 8

When in need of color, there is nothing like the poppies of Provence to cheer you up. I will miss them this year. 

This is my 4th painting for sale for $200 under the #artistsupportpledge initiative. As I get closer to my goal of selling 5 paintings, I pledge to purchase another artist's work. Please message or email me if you are interested, or reach out and share with your friends. Stay safe!

Forsythia Jungle

Forsythia Jungle - Pastel 8 x 10 - Sold
Forsythia comes in many shapes, sometimes trimmed in square, round or cone shapes but I like it best wild and unruly like this cluster I walked by a few days ago.
This painting sold through the #artistsupportpledge. When I reach $1000.00 in sales, I pledge to purchase another artist's work.
