From Pastel to Oil

Some of you will remember my pastel sketch of a little girl posted a few weeks back walking in front of azaleas.

Here's the oil painting...finally! Will be shipped in a couple of weeks to the happy new owner! It's a Christmas gift for his wife...this is their granddaughter.

Oil, 11x14 on stretched canvas painted with palette knife

(I'm glad he likes my impressionist style!)

Here's the post with the pastel sketches...

Carly I know that they will be thrilled with it as I am sure you are. It is a great painting.

When we look at a piece of art work it has to form some kind of connection to the viewer. It must evoke a memory or stir the imagination or it will fail to cause the person to return to it and examine it further. By painting some of natures hidden treasures I hope to bring the viewer back to places or times that are stored in their memories.

Thanks everyone,
the color here is a bit washed out...I must have had glare that I didn't notice on the painting...

but, the new owner has seen a jpg of the painting and is very happy! I'll get my check next week...and told him that I wanted to ship after it dries for another week before shipping! So both the pastel sketch and painting are sold!!!!

Happy me

and even happier me (no more commissions!)

Carly, this is so beautiful...you have a way with color and the soft feel of it all really goes with a "little girl" painting!!!

Just lovely,
