I haven't posted a painting in a while, been busy preparing for shows.

Just finished this pastel of a part of the Meadowcroft Estate in Sayville NY. I used a photo as a reference but of course used my own colors. It was fun as I don't do as many studio landscapes as I would like. It's long and narrow on U-Art Pastel Paper ,approx. 10"x20", which I thought fit the scene. I used many different pastel. I'll probably tweek it some more, hope you like it!

I really like the colors you used in the sky. Really soft and pretty.

Thank you so much Don,Chris and Grinner for you kind comments! I think this spot is so indicative of the beauiful wetland scenes on Long Island! So glad you like it Chris as you know the area.
