11 x 14 inch acrylic "Fall Morning"

This is another attempt at using acrylic paint. It is done on stretched canvas. This is a typical fall morning around here with the mist between the hills. I am working frantically this week at finishing off some ideas I have for my show in January and a couple of Xmas gifts. I have a two pastels that I would like to get done (of horses, my favorite subject) this week while I am off from work. Maybe by the weekend I will get to post them.

8 x 10 inch pastel "A Fine Winter's Morning"

This painting is an experiment on the smooth side of Canson pastel paper. The paper is a beautiful orange color which compliments the blues and purples I have used throughout this painting. The painting depicts the first light of morning as it shines over a snowy field. I love how the orange of the paper glows thru the pastel.

12 x 12 inch pastel "Snow Leopard"

I just finished this painting on suedeboard in soft pastel. I like the colors I used in this painting and already have a square frame all ready for it.

5 x 6 inch pastel "Elk"

I haven't worked on velour paper for awhile so I thought I would try this elk. I might even make a xmas card out of this one.

9 x 12 inch pastel "Wild Pony"

Another painting done on sanded pastel paper in soft pastel. This paper is excellent for creating landscapes but it is a little more difficult to do detailed work because of it's coarse nature. I tried to keep this painting a little looser, especially the horse.
