Shades of Pink

9' x 12" soft pastel on la carte paper
I never tire of looking at flowers. I love the explosion of them now in late spring. I love watching the hummingbirds fly from one bloom to another. This still life is of a centerpiece on my sister-in-laws dining room table. Contact me if you're interested in its purchase.

Gift for Claudia

size: 4"x6" soft pastel on 100% rag paper

These chairs are in my brother and sister-in-law's back yard. I was drawn to the contrast in the greens of the ground to those in the leaves of the plants. I like the placement of the plants on the rusty chairs. I gave this painting to Claudia (my sister-in-law) for being such a great hostess while my husband and I were visiting them last week.
