SUNLIGHT IN THE AUTUMN WOOD 16 X 26

This is one of my favorite places to take a walk, on the top of Nordic Mountain Ski Hill. There are great hiking trails through wooded areas which are also used by mountain bikers in the summer and fall.

GOLDEN FIELD WITH CLOUDS AND TREES 8 x 11

This was done as a demo in a workshop I gave to artists for whom the pastel medium was new. They had limited pastel colors to choose from, so I chose a limited palette (30 piece Rembrandt set) and Canson Mi Tienes paper so that I would be using the same materials as most of those taking the workshop were using. Makes me very thankful for the numerous pastels and the sanded papers that I usually use.

CLOUDS 15 x 26

When I saw the announcement on April 4 that the art world and particularly the pastel world had lost our dear Maggie Price I knew that I needed to spend the day in my studio painting. I chose to do a  cloud painting because Maggie taught such a wonderful technique for painting clouds. It seemed fitting.
