Purple Tulips

I haven't posted many of my pastel paintings since I began this blog because I've been so emersed in painting with oil.  I did this one last year at my Florida home during a class I took with an incredible artist named Florence Anderson.  I look forward to taking her class again this winter. 
Have a wonderful holiday season and I'll be posting again once I get settled in FL after the first of the year.

Set Sail

This is an 8x10 on gessoed masonite.  Have been enjoying holiday outings and get togethers with family and friends this past week.  This is the first year in a long time that I am on top of things and can relax a little the week before Christmas.  I'm looking forward to getting some painting done this week.  Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season as well!

Doctor's Orders 2

 I really enjoy painting with a palette knife.  It snowed today in Ohio and I'm reflecting back on my time by the ocean in Florida.  I do love snow for Christmas, but that's enough for me.

Catch the Wave

This was a 6x6 on gessoed masonite.  My granddaughter loves the beach and can't wait to get back there and have my family visit again.
