Hudson Sentinel

United Society of Pastel Artists are exhibiting our pastels at The Cottage Gallery in Laguna Beach from Nov 4-Dec. 13. During artwalk last week, I did a demonstration at the gallery. I'd never done that before and it was fun and interesting to hear people's take on pastel painting. "Chalk" is mentioned over and over again. I worked from a photo I took in North Creek, New York during September. Had to finish it at home since it's 16x20 on a black board and I did way too much talking and not enough painting during the artwalk!

Early Morning Shade

Went out to paint with the San Clemente Art Association members two weeks ago at Laguna Niguel Park. The road to the lake was closed so we were all abliged to stay close to the entrance. I love this park - it's close to my house and so beautiful, no matter where you go to paint.
