Working on Farm Images for a Show

Feels good to be back doing my pastels, even if they are a bit messy.  Nothing compares to the brilliant colors and the effects you can make with the pigment sticks. 

I am working on a bunch of farm scenes and when I have three good ones I will enter them in the Lake County Heritage Farm Foundation's show called "The Farm: Images from the Heartland". 

Here is something I just finished for a sneak preview.  Its a pastel on paper, approx. 6 x 12. 
Let me know what you think!


  1. You are getting so much better Kid! I love the trees and the blue in the cow. Something you would not have done a year ago. Bravo!

  2. Thanks Cindy! I always keep your words in mind-"think outside the box"! Painting is a fun journey that I love exploring.
