Another pastel

5 x 7


This scene reminds me of a Paris cafe found on the Boulevard du Montparnasse. A small cafe where one can rest, have an expresso and watch the world go by. I love doing these small pastels and capturing a slice of time and place. This painting is also being featured as the Painting of the Week on Polly Jackson's painting blog. Thanks, Polly!

It's good to be back

Bridge at Mendoza Park, Austin, TX

Hello Everybody:

It's so good to be back posting again. I have lots of paintings to show as I've been painting instead of blogging. The painting I'm posting today is a pastel of the pedestrian bridge at Mendoza Park here in Austin. It was done for a challenge sent out by Polly Jackson on her Paint Paint Paint blog. I'm also donating it to the annual auction benefiting the Arc of the Capital Area which will take place on Thursday, Oct. 15 at the Hilton, Austin, Downtown.
