Working on light and shadow patterns


This is a new painting I am working on.  I have a little fine tuning to do on it yet.

I visited the Phoenix, AZ area last fall and we went for a drive to see the Superstitions Mountains and park.  Nearby was a little mining town.  This is the little jail house.  I loved how the light filtered through the roof and made patterns on the adobe wall.

I love it, Carolyn!!!!!
Just amazing pastel! Looks like trees from shadows! Very-very beautiful, great composition!

I always liked dance of the shadows! And in your painting I feel hot sun and I see you in the big panama :)

GREAT!!!!!!!

Hi Ira, yes, I'm OK, thank you for asking. I have not been able to paint lately, but very soon. I have been involved with a BIG project! Building and planting a vegetable and herb garden. With a short growing season, you have to do it all right away when the weather warms up.
