"Golden Field" - Soft Pastel Painting

Our pastel society is having a members exhibit coming up, and the theme is "think outside the box". I wanted to lean toward an abstract painting for this show...but still convey a landscape. Most of the pastel strokes were done using the sides of the pastel...Ala Desmond O'Hagan. Hope you like it.

This is titled "Golden Field". It's 18"x12" on Wallis Museum, using too many different pastel brands to mention.

Heart Abstract - Soft Pastel Painting

This is sort of "out of the box" for me...it's an abstract soft pastel painting - it was a gift for my wife for Valentine's Day. Next year I'm thinking of painting a few for Valentine's Day gifts...guess I need to start painting now with the way I procrastinate!

I hope everyone had a warm and loving Valentine's day!

This is 8"x7" on Wallis Professional. Too many soft pastel brands to list!

In the right place...at the right time...

Sometimes a photographer has to search a long time for that perfect capture. I was lucky enough to glance down an alley near Pioneer Square in Seattle, Washington...and captured one of my favorite shots ever!
