I tried to do 2 this weekend to make up for being absent so long. The relatives are gone, horse is sold, vacation and weekend work is done for now. The broken water pipe in our bedroom is still leaking, though... Thanks so much for hosting, Connie and all of the beautiful photos. I may try a self-portrait this week, probably in graphite - one of my most comfortable mediums. I need to be comfortable to draw myself.....
Both of these are approximately 10x13 on brownish Canson mi Tientes paper, Sennelier Oil Pastels. C&C most welcome.
About 2 hours on Connie's tree - still needs work....
About 1 1/2 hours on the wetlands - loved the colors on this one!

Beautiful, Beautiful Paintings Becky. These two were my favorites that I saved, and you have done such wonderful paintings of them. The sky in the wetlands is to die for, and the greens and the bark of the tree just luv them :clap: :clap:

Becky, both of these are really pretty. I don't know which one is my favorite. Both of them I guess.
