This quiet beach scene was painted on location
in Florida during my art retreat.
The feathery clouds, the soft waves,
the delicate colors,
all contribute to a serene respite
from life's challenges.

Fernandina Sunset

Pastel, 9" x 12" $175

I'm so enjoying painting with pastels.
This scene can be anywhere,
but for the sake of a title,
I named it Fernandina Sunset.
End of day has a certain 
beautiful melancholy to it.

Coastal Sunset

Pastel, 9"x12" $200

The sunset is lighting up the ocean water and foam of the waves.
At such times there is a translucent quality in part of the roiling wave
which I somehow was able to capture. Luck!
I think my love of nature at a beach comes through in this piece.
I want to be there now.

Mom's Eyeglasses

Pastel, 6"x8" $75

This still life of eyeglasses represents
a challenging pastel exercise:
count your strokes and finger smudges, keeping
the number to 100 or fewer.
The purpose of the exercise is to spend more time
observing than painting,
in order to make each stroke of the paste count
and be the right, correct stroke the first time.
No erasures or corrections allowed!
