a turning point?

"Turning Point: Color Study for Pond Painting"
painted August 29, 2014
Each painting we create is a separate experience but together all our paintings make us the painters we are at the moment.

I wondered what would happen when I went back to pastel after the series of small still life oil paintings I began last spring. I painted orange cups, red cherries, and most of the small paintings had a lot of saturated color.  This is a pastel plein air study of our garden pond, a subject I have painted many times before but never quite as brightly as this one.

A long title for a small painting (6 x 7.25 inches), "Turning Point: Color Study for Pond Painting," is available for purchase on Daily Paintworks.
