true love in two mediums

Yesterday I finished the 18x18 inch oil painting based on my 5x7 inch pastel color study. Similar scene, different format - square instead of rectangular, different mood - changed the direction of the light source, different medium. And of course, a different painting experience with each medium.


  1. Wow, Barbara, just gorgeous. Love the contrasts - colors and values. But you're always great at that!

  2. I love the way the yellow sparkles through the distant trees...:-) Really lovely work and very inspiring.

  3. Thank you Vabna Islam for your comment. Here is an excerpt "In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit." Very true. Sorry, I don't include links in comments.
