After doing snow scenes before winter arrives, I have decided to do some fall scenes before it is over! This is a scene from Hope Valley, of an aspen grove. This is a watercolor underpainting on PastelBord. When it is dry, I will do the pastel over it.
We just got back from a short visit to Louisville, Kentucky. We visited Churchill Downs Racetrack during the off-season and took tours there of the barns. We also saw an exhibit about Secretariat.
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
