Also – a quick thank you to Oldenbroke for featuring my work on his blog: Artists in Pastels. I love reading through this blog and have discovered many of my favorite pastelists there. So honored to be featured with such a talented bunch. Oldenroke is an excellent pastelist himself. You can view his works here: Oldenbroke’s Pastel Progress Blog.

Matted and framed as shown
SOLD to a collector in Bay Shore, NY.

This little gem was completed on Saturday during Art in the Park. I’ve been so busy, I completely failed to send out a note about it before. This year was interesting. Many vendors didn’t show up because of the threat of rain in the morning. Despite that, there was a really great showing in customers. I met some friends – old and new. All in all, we had a great time. The rain eased up, so the afternoon was nice and sunny. Thanks to everyone who was able to stop by. A HUGE thanks to my supporting crew (you know who you are!). I couldn’t do it every year without you!!

Now it’s back to the studio to work on a couple commissions.

Until next time…

Thank you to everyone who took the time to let me know what you think of a particular painting, or my art in general. I really appreciate hearing from you all.

And without further ado… The winner of the painting give-away is…..

Congratulations, Barb!
