Sunset 12

9″ x 12″ Pastel

I loved putting this painting together.

It is representational, but has abstract elements:

the combination is my favorite!

Fernandina Sunset

Pastel, 9″ x 12″

I’m so enjoying painting with pastels.

This scene can be anywhere,

but for the sake of a title,

I named it Fernandina Sunset.

End of day has a certain

beautiful melancholy to it.

Coastal Sunset

Pastel, 9″x12″

The sunset is lighting up the ocean water and foam of the waves.

At such times there is a translucent quality in part of the roiling wave

which I somehow was able to capture. Luck!

I think my love of nature at a beach comes through in this piece.

I want to be there now.

At sunset the brilliant light reflects onto the beach

utter delight.

Sail Away

Pastel, approximately 9″ x 12″

Dramatic skies provide the tone for this seascape.

I hope the viewer feels the breeze and loves the reflections at sunset.

This painting came together after toning the canvas with

Quinacridone Magenta.

You can see where I left some of that original toning paint untouched.

This is a universal sunset; it could be anywhere.

Southwest Vista

I often comment on what a joy making art is for me.
Now, not always is this the case! Yesterday I painted for several hours, and am not happy with anything from that whole session.
But this one…I love it and I loved creating it.
It evolved from an initial painting that looked nothing like this finished product.
There are many layers of traditional oil paint
as well as many layers of pure pigment oil paint on this canvas.
It must go to a good home.

Late Afternoon Colors

Watercolor, approximately 6″x12″

So many colors are found in the sand and sky in the late afternoon

at the beach.

Sometimes the artist just pushes the color she sees a little bit,

and magic happens.
