First Friday and new Pastel Landscape Painting

It is First Friday! Gene is framing and I am printing new cards. We will be hanging the paintings, freshening up the window display, preparing food, etc. It will be a long day. :) I did put away the pastels and straighten up my studio.

The Great Divide
Pastel on Pastelbord, 20 x 16 inches

I finished this yesterday. It is probably a little brighter, at least before I posted it here, I thought it was. I guess it depends on your monitor. The highlights on the pines on the right are pretty yellow in real life. Anyway, I hope you enjoy seeing this.

Stop by my studio tonight (see Calendar above) to see the new paintings and newly framed paintings to go to New Mexico next week. They are so much nicer in person.

Yikes! Our departure date is quickly arriving. Work, work, work ........

Jo ! The landscape is delicious!

Leslie, well, thank you so much. The First Friday receptions were nice, but it still isn't the "old BFAG days". We did see Lester S. Hadn't seen him in ages......Take care.

You out-did yourself this time.

Hi Rae, thank you so much. Water is always a challenge, but I like doing it.

Bag Blog, thank you. That is from our circle trip from Taos to Antonito to Chama and back to Taos. I think near the border of Colorado and New Mexico.
