Walk in the Park, New Landscape Pastel Painting for February First Friday Art Walk

Finally, as promised a new pastel painting. I painted this pastel landscape in my studio from photo references and my good old memory.  I was at the park with Sue Modrak and we painted down on the riverwalk path.  It was a gorgeous day.  Those good memories inspired this painting.

Walk in the Park
Pastel on Pastelbord, 9 x 12 inches
 Framed in a mahogany colored plein air frame.
