STARTING A NEW YEAR


Started off the new year by completing 4 paintings.  Working on a fifth I hope to post shortly.

The following is from a photograph taken on the road to the Enchanted Rock State Park in Texas.

The Enchanted Highway, 9 x 12, Pastel
Last Saturday the Texas Pastel Society had a paint-in.  We had four set ups to choose from.  I picked the one shown below.

Irene's Vase, 9 x 12, Pastel
Last Sunday I saw an amazing sunrise from County Line road here in New Braunfels.  The pink clouds and the two tone sky was very unusual and beautiful.  Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera, so I had to paint this from memory.

And last, but not least, another autumn scene from New England.
