Pine Tree.....Mini

Pine Tree.....Mini  2.5 x 3.5 pastel
Yes, it really is that small. Very fun to do, can be matted in a wide mat or sealed in a crystal clear bag and displayed on a small easel. Great gifts or if you only have a small space work great on a shelf.
If you want more information on supplies etc. you can check out . Needless to say I had  more trouble taking the photo than I did doing the painting. For more information on these small pastels, go to Karen Margulis blog and U-tube video. Thanks for all the info Karen

Sunnys in the Garden

Sunnys in the Garden   Oil on canvas   12X12
A few gloomy days and winter on the horizon, just had to get in a bright cheerful painting. I used some new brushes on this, different feel while painting. They are made by Rosemary's Brushes and are called Ivory Flats, very interesting and will use them many more times. I am used to Bristle brushes and this was fun to feel the difference in paint application.
No changes , no growth so am constantly trying new items I suggest you challenge yourself and your painting in some way each time you pick up a brush or pastel.
