Today I received a notice that I was accepted into the Pastel Society of America.  I am thrilled beyond words!

Lemons and Bowl with early Daffs

Lemons and Bowl with Early Daffs
10x10 oil on panel
I enjoyed painting Friday's daffs so much that I bought two more bunches when I went out for groceries.  It is snowing again and is forecast to continue until the end of the day tomorrow. A foot or two on top of the three feet we had last week. There isn't a better way to spend the time than inside the warm studio painting daffodils and thinking of spring.

Lemons and Daffs

Lemons and Daffs
6x6 oil on panel
This one is almost done, just needs a little tweeking.
I started with a wash of sienna and a sketch with umber, wiping out the lights.
Block -in

Adjusting.  This is where I notice it is almost finished and that it might be ok.
