pastel plein air

Plein air done of a farm on a road I never went down. I love taking back roads cause you never see the little pieces of beauty that God gives you. Its just a wonder all the beauty of nature. And me a simple human trying to match the creator.

sheep pasture

I have this image from wet canvas that I just love. I did do it in wc but the paper ripped when I took the tape off, so redid in pastel

Pledge of allegiance

I got this in my email this morning. How awesome. May we never forget that we are One Nation under God

still working

I keep on plodding along. Working on oils. The first 2 pictures are watercolors, which I think Im finally getting a handle on it. I joined a new website Its pretty cool as you can upload your pictures that you painted and see the location on the globe. People from all over the world are placing pictures. Its a wonderful idea. Ah the world of art, a very solitary experience but then you can see the world of art from other solitary people. When your out plein air painting its just you and God out there. There are occasional passersby but for the most part for me its the spiritual experience of almost meeting God at the moment of creation.
I do wish my camera picked up the true colors. I guess I need a photo course.
