8 x 10 inch pastel "Mountain Road"

I enjoyed doing this little fall scene just for a change of pace from the usual animal portraits that I have been doing lately. This one is done on sanded pastel paper which holds tons of pastel and is a real joy to work on.

8 x 10 inch pastel "Simba"

This painting is of our dear dog Simba who passed away last year. He is sitting on his favorite cushion with his shaggy hair covering one eye like it always did. I have been wanting to do this painting for some time and now I am glad I did, although it was very hard because I miss him very much. I will be giving this painting to my son for Xmas. I am sure he will love it.
