Moss on Log

6 x 8 pastel
This is done from a photo that was taken while it was raining. Even if it is cloudy the rain seems to brighten the colors. The greens in earlier spring are bright anyway.

Stone Wall With Forsythia

6 x 8 pastel

These stonewalls are a good exercise for me to stay loose. Although, the longer I work the painting the tighter it gets. This one seems a little under developed. My mission is to take them further without over doing it.

Overgrown Tractor

6 x 8 pastels
We live in a lawn manicured neighborhood. My husband is the one who keeps our yard tidy. If it were up to me it would be more "natural". There is one farm done the road, however, that is more natural - completely run done and overgrown to be more precise. This tractor is sitting in what was once a field.

Walking Path in the Fall

5 x 7 oil on board
This was done from an older photo. There was a bunch of them I took one rainy day along this walking path when the color was at its peak. I keep refering back to them.
