"Waterway with Lilies", pastel.

"Waterway with Lilies",
12 x 12", Pastel on Pastelbord.

Sometimes, when revisiting one of those old favorite paintings, 
I starting to think :"What if..."
What if I would have done this different, or that different,
 soften that edge, play contrast here or there...
Well, good news, when I'm looking at one of my PASTEL paintings,
it all is still possible.
"Paintings are never finished, just abandoned..."
I think it perfect description of pastel paintings. 
One can always go back... if only one has a desire!...
With this in mind I spent my evening playing with this piece.
It is a risky game sometime, but today it just worked out for me.
So here is a new version of 'Waterways".
I like it. I hope You do too.

Creek study, Pastel.

Another study of my beloved Cove Creek,
two miles or so down on a road from where we live...
This one was done on U-art 400 with some underpainting.
I used my Plein Air set of pastels to do this painting.
something I do off and on in studio setting
to stay comfortable with lesser color choices.

"Koi Play", Crepe de Chine.

Another finished silk piece, this one is Crepe De Chine,
 very different "canvas" to work on... but it was fun.

I will be holding another silk painting class later this fall.
Please feel free to contact

The Art Center
for more information.
