In the Thick of It - pastel

14 x 18 inches, pastel on board. 
I've had the reference photo for this in my "future painting ideas" computer file for years.  So it felt good to finally get around to tackle the scene.  It was quite the challenge to capture the color, light and organized chaos....and the certain "glow" that comes within these aspen thickets during early evening.

Cottonwood Splendor - pastel

12 x 16 pastel on board.  I am having fun painting trees; and in particular the fall colors.

Fall Cottonwoods - pastel

SOLD 8 x 10 inches.  Had fun with this.  And relatively pleased how it turned out; considering trees have always given me fits to paint in the past.

Evening Thunderstorm - pastel study

I have been painting.  I will be posting more paintings soon. This one is 8 x 10 inches.  Just playing around one evening, having fun painting a scene that does not require accurate drawing (such as people or horses).  Someday I may do a larger, more "finished" version of this.
