"Saffron Ridge"

"Saffron Ridge"  pastel  8x8"
My second Plein air piece Sunday before last ... Was not working ...way too "geometric" so worked on it some in the studio and it pulled me toward total abstraction...I scrubbed off areas to simplify it ...added some white areas...scrubbed more and POW!! Love it

Plein Air Sunday

"Vineyards and Valleys"  10x8"  pastel on LaCarte
The hills in our valley have become almost an obsession for me - perfect resource for my abstract work. Late this afternoon I packed up my supplies and headed over the hill overlooking the river and hills. The late horizontal sun shaped the hills and created outstanding highlights. Love how this one turned out.

PSA Pastelagram Featured Artist

My abstract work is featured in the Spring 2012 issue of the Pastel Society of America's Pastelagram. It was an honor to be one of six artists to be featured and an ever greater honor for them to choose my abstract work to feature. I have been having such fun with the abstracts - that truly is where my passion is . . . at the moment! Hopefully you receive the Pastelagram, but if not perhaps you can read a bit of this if it's sharp enough.  If not, and you want to read the article, I can get it retyped and put into a PDF for everyone.
