I love where I live.
Plein air done in early morning, I watched a cloud form as the fog lifts on the hillside.
A Sunday morning prayer of thanks.

Large acrylic painting is done and now it is back to the works in progress(wip)
on the other easels. The pastel landscapes of local scenery are still being created. This recently completed one is of the sky one night this past month.
It dazzled me, the moon playing peek a boo with the clouds in a not yet dark sky at sundown.

I visited my family in Denver this past week.
I also got to visit Terry Ludwig Pastels. I met Terry and Co and got the tour of the shop where he makes his pastels. What fun!
Of course I purchased more colors. Then I did this plein air piece.
Great views of the Rockies foothills from my son's home.

Rain or shine the views are just fine!

I have completed another pastel painting in my series of Cummings Cove Golf Course.
This hole is precarious at best, though some have holed in one it. Still, the balls in the water outnumber the ones in the cup.

My contribution to the celebration. Yes, I paint food on occasion. These are perhaps the finest donuts ever made. Worth every trip to the hips! Westampton Bakery in Richmond, VA

I think I need more pastels! I am working on larger paintings on sanded paper and the colors are quickly disappearing. Bet that excuse is one that pastelists often to justify spending money on more colors. I am definitely in love with this medium. I love my new Terry Ludwig sets I received for my birthday.
This sky was what greeted us on our entrance into the state of North Carolina last October.

While following a friend's journey walking across England, I was inspired to do this piece from one of the many photos they are sharing. I have used the major layout but changed the colors to suit my own intentions. I did this with Terry Ludwig pastels and some Senneliers.
