I spent the day sitting the Women Painters of Washington Gallery in Seattle. Six hours of art talk with friend and WPW member Kristi Galindo Dyson. I also got in a little pastel time working with ideas from the reference photos of sand dunes taken on a recent trip to Carmel, CA. This painting is little - just 5 x 7 inches. Working fast in this small format gives the fresh look that I wish came as easily in my larger work.
