I am really enjoying doing these works in pastel. The drawing, or rather painting, is so direct and immediate that it is a nice break from doing colored pencil drawings. Plus I am finding that working in each media serves as fuel for the other. So I am planning to continue with weekly pastel paintings just to see where they might take me.

This image is from the sound near Currituck, on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

This is lovely work Ann. You always seem to capture the peace of the surroundings in your pieces.
