I found it!














This morning I could not locate the one Sennelier pastel that I love for chestnut horses....so I did other things for awhile and came back and my eyes saw it immediately....NOW I have the right color!

Beginnings...














Began two paintings this morning....one is a Christmas commission (the horse) and the other is still a pencil drawing, a study for a mural for a Fire Dept. wall....there will be two murals, 4' x 7' each. The idea of this one is the firefighter on the left, on the roof, is going to be a firefighter from the past....and he is reaching for the modern-day firefighter coming up the ladder. The left side will be glowing from the flames and a chimney and who-knows-what-else will be on the right side of them. Just playing with the pencil and eraser (a lot with the eraser!) right now.

I need your advice!


















The paintings for the Christmas card are finished....my question is, which owl painting do you think I should use?
