For this painting I wanted a nice Texas sky and a windmill. Windmills are a dying breed and we need to keep the memories. We noticed traveling in New Mexico and Texas that many more electric pumps and solar pumps are showing up. They may be more efficient but they don't tug at my heart strings.
You may recall that I painted some geraniums with Pan Pastels. http://www.jocastilloartblog.blogspot.com/2015/05/fall-on-your-face-and-pastel-painting.html It started as a learning experience but I really like red and I ended up liking this little painting so much. So I added some highlights with some soft pastel sticks and Gene put it in a frame for me.
Both of these paintings will be available at Art Connections Gallery http://www.artconnectionsgallerybastrop.com/ after July 6. Stop in when you can and see my work that is there. Art Connections has such a variety of original art work: jewelry, paintings, sculpture, glass, and much, much more. You will definitely find something you like. There is always an event going on with special incentives to start your collection. 10% of my sales benefit the Family Crisis Center with 10% of all sales going to various charities.
I will be back in Bastrop in the fall and in the meantime you can visit my art at Art Connections and visit me here on line. Let's have a conversation while we travel!
