Hi everyone,

I haven't been here in about a year. Just getting back into pastels, I was going through my inventory. This painting is a crop from one I did last year. It was originally a 12x16 painting with a lot more going on. I didn't like the composition so I thought I'd crop out what I did like. This is a 5x7, soft pastels on sanded paper (Sennelier laCarte, I think). C&C's appreciated.

Agreed! The blue shadows go great with the red/orange trees!

Thanks for your comments. I think I should name this "Fiery Maples" instead. I didn't realize how bright the orange is. What do you think - is it too bold?

I love the boldness.... and that is a great title idea. I too have had a long break from painting. Only about 2 months, but it feels like forever!
Keep 'em coming!!!!

What a wonderful re-entry! Just like a glowing space capsule!

I love it! Definitely not too bold!

OK! Thanks so much for your support. Here's the 12x16 failed painting that I cropped this from.
