"Temple Fish" pastel - finished

9 x 12 pastel on sanded paper

Well, how's this for a splash of color!  I finished this painting today. I do want to do more paintings of fish, and I'd like to improve and better the outcome, but I had fun nonetheless.

I entered Richeson 75 Landscape show, and my painting "Watching the Stream" was not a finalist (in which case you must ship your paintings to their gallery in the MidWest), but it did make the "meritorious" selection.  I am very happy.  This is the first time I entered one of their juried shows.  My painting will be printed in their catelogue, along with 100 other meritorious paintings.  I ordered the catelogue - they print a hardbound book.  I'm looking forward to receiving it.
