I like your matting and frame it works well your work. Tell us a bit about this painting. What size is the painting, which paper did use and which pastels? Is there a story behind this painting?. Curious minds want to know.

Karen,
Thanks for your interest and commentary. The painting is Faber - Castell soft pastels and Stabilo CarbOthello pastel pencils on Canson MT blue toned paper on the smooth side. Image size is 9" X 12".

The woodpecker kept trying to catch me moving as I photographed him clutched to a branch o' Mountain Laurel. I decided he would make an interesting subject for a painting. The beaver pond background is from me imagination based on personal experiences in such habitat.

I know this little guy(or gal)!
I have my morning coffee while watching the birds in my backyard and have often played hide and seek with the downies.
Hope he(she) finds a good home!

Thanks Leslie. I will eventually be donating this to a charitable event.
