"Afternoon Cholla" pastel painting

This is a little study from a photo I took in Palm Desert.  This was one of those paintings that I labored over.

I feel real bad about the disasters in Japan.  Years ago I was a summer exchange student there.  Not in the areas that are talked about in the news, but sometimes I wonder if the hosting families I stayed with have relatives there. 

The weather here has been rainy, gloomy and windy and cold.  A jackhammer has been hammering away across the street for 3 full days now.  I try to be creative with all of this - but it is harder, I admit it.

The good news is that I'm done preparing taxes for our CPA!  One big cloud over my head is gone!!!!!
