Two Pastels

This is an 11″ X 14″ pastel painting titled Lone Pine that I am happy to report received a first place ribbon in the Other Media category in the Lakewood Artist Guild’s Spring Art Show on April 21st.  I also received a third place ribbon in the same category as shown further down.

Yep, it’s a blue ribbon!

This is a 4″ X 9″pastel painting floating in a 7-1/2″ X 10″ space  titled Golden Meadow and was the one that got the third place ribbon at the show in the Other Medium category.   I was totally surprised (and pleased, of course) with the judge’s decision!

I’m happy to be back painting again.  This is the longest break I’ve taken in a very long time, although I have been sketching occasionally during that time.   Hopefully, I haven’t lost too many visitors in the past 3 or 4 months, but I’m determined to work daily and share my art adventure with you all.  The show was a wonderful return to public viewing!

    WOW! Firstest! And Thirdeth. We always knew you were number 1 but it is good that others are catching on! Great work. I’d take up a hobby, but I have to go take a nap now.

    Thanks, Leila. I’ll try to fulfill your expectations!


    Thanks, little sister. Now, don’t take this wrong, but maybe if you took fewer naps, you could hobby up a storm. (Actually, I think taking care of your rescued Beardie and gardening on your hillside are probably hobbies enough. When do I get pictures?)
