I haven't posted since September! Time is flying by and I can't seem to keep up. I have been happy to supply small pastel works to 3040 Gallery in Old Forge, NY, which seem to be selling. I also supplied small pastels for a show in Middletown, NY recently, which has turned out to be very nice. I'm posting some of the small pastels. Most are 3.5x5, 4x4, 5x5 and 4x6. I've had lots of fun doing these small pieces.

Last year, on our trip to California, I went to paint in the little historic village in San Juan Capistrano. It's always beautiful there, little side streets with old houses dating from the 1700's, flowers everywhere blooming, as they only do all year round in California. This was done this spring from a photo I took that day. Loved the light play on the gate, flowers and road. I have to say, I do miss this place wherever we are home in the Adirondacks. This is 20x16 pastel
Going out to paint can be an iffy proposition. It really didn't look like it would rain, so I packed up my gear and headed to the bridge, at the back of Abanakee Lake, in Indian Lake. I was enjoying the view and started to paint when the light changed, the wind picked up and I realized that the mountain I was painting was looking very ominous. The one thing I didn't want wet was my pastels, so I packed up quickly, took lots of pictures and got in the car. Ready to start the car, the downpour came. Saved once again! Finished at home. This pastel was sold at Abanakee Studios, Indian Lake, NY

Shadows around this gorgeous tree in Rochester, New York caught my attention. There was a peace to this tree, so sturdy, so much width to shelter people from the sun, a bit mystical in it's color. I don't know what kind of tree this is, but still love the beauty in it.
