16 x 20 inch acrylic "Jar full of marbles"

I had a lot of fun working on this one. I love all the different colors of the marbles. This was quite a challenge for me trying to keep those marbles round! Anyway here it is finished I think. I am almost finished by ballet dancer in the window so I will be posting it soon.

Quick study of ballerina

This is completely out of my comfort zone, but I have wanted to try this for a long time. I did this very quickly (about 1 hour) with mainly pastel pencils as a study for a larger painting that I will do in arcylic or maybe even oil (that is REALLY stretching it!). I have this really gorgeous antique gold leaf frame that I am itching to put something in so if it turns out, it will have a home. Stay tuned!

Misc. paintings done in pastel

I have been working on this group of paintings, and I thought I would show them here as a whole. They are all done in pastel on suede matboard and are 5 x 7 inches matted in an 8 x 10 mat. They are in glassine envelopes, so there is a bit of a glare in the photos. I have a few more that I plan to do in the same way.
