First Friday Pastel....

A new pastel for First Friday Artwalk, Friday April 7,  in Bastrop!  Hopefully I can make it to the fun.  Art Connections Gallery is having a couple of neat things going on.  My two or three new pastels will join my paintings at Art Connections.  Two for sure and one is a work in progress.

The featured artist is Glenda Kronkes.  Glenda makes beautiful glass pieces that look like they are made from coral or sea weed.  Read about her here and then show up to meet her and to see Glenda's outstanding work.

My first painting for the show.  Water is much fun to paint.  Too bad I couldn't get to Corpus Christi or South Padre to do some plein air.  Maybe in the fall...

I love sunsets and sunrises.  Not sure which this is.  Surely if it was morning the fisherman would be in the boat.  Hmm.

I'm impressed by your sky. You know me and skies, and rocks, and water....

The Birds Watching is my favorite - reminds me of a picture I took of Jesse while in Scotland. She was sitting out on some similar posts on the North Sea beach.
