Birds of Paradise 24x18 Pastel(sold)
This pastel was actually painted in my studio in Florida, when I lived there. It's from a picture of the Birds of Paradise in Heisler Park, Laguna Beach, California. I know there are plenty of great "Birds" in Florida, but I couldn't resist.........

Just for My Art!

This site is a venue for me to post and review art I've created in the last few years, and art that I've been creating lately. Hopefully, I've gotten better, but you can be the judge!

For the last few years I've been obsessed with the pastel medium. Most of my paintings these days are in soft pastel, although I've been doing some small watercolors and dabbling in oil.

I totally love the vibrancy of color with pastel, the feel of them and how easy they are to do plein air. I get "in the zone" when painting with them and must have hundreds of different colors and brands. See, said I was obsessed with them!
