Light in the landscape

I love the designs created by fresh snow over sage and grass.
Light upon the landscape is everything ... it draws the eye
into the sage - beckoning you onto a small trail made
by a bunny rabbit or flock of quail ... light accentuates little
treasures rarely seen, until light reveals it ... 
I hope "Morning Glory" gives you a little hope in these
scary, uncertain times of the Covid 19 virus ...

"A Gentle Midday" Accepted into Master Circle Exhibit

"A GENTLE MIDDAY" has been accepted in the 4th IAPS Master Circle Exhibition in Albuquerque in June. 6x12" - sometimes good things come in small packages! Thank you so much IAPS Jurors Gwenneth Barth White, Debora Stewart, and Margaret Evans. I'm very excited to have work hanging in the Master Circle Exhibition this year!  

"Midnight Magic" Had a Good Year

"Midnight Magic", one of my favorite pastel paintings of 2016, found a new home with a local collector. "Midnight Magic" had a good year, receiving the BOLD BRUSH FAV 15% in FEB.; winning 2nd place in the Signature Division in the PSWC Online Member's Exhibit; was included in an article in the PSA Pastelagram Summer Edition by Duane Wakeham; and received the 'Show Submit' Award at the PSA Enduring Brilliance Exhibit in NYC in September; and as Gail Sibley reminded me, it was featured in her "How to Pastel" December Dynamite Pastels article! . I'm sorry to see it go, but I know where it now lives! Thank you W.F.!

"A Moment in Rhyme"

I love black-capped Chickadees - one of my gramma Charlotte's
favorite little birds - and they are plentiful around our place
here in Central Washington!

"Dusk on High Tide"

"Dusk on High Tide" ... made a few changes .. I like it now... 8x10 oil on revived panel... Thanks much T.F. of Wenatchee ...  SOLD
