Ponderosa Hillside (study), 6x6


Ponderosa Hillside", 6x6" Pastel on sanded paper

Have you ever spent time in the California Sierras? The climate is very hot in the summer months, and I wanted to portray the temperature in my painting "Ponderosa Hillside". It's reminiscent of my visits camping in the Lake Tahoe area as a kid. Oh, the beautiful area that takes all your troubles away, washing out the business of city life. If this piece seems familiar, that is because this is my pastel demonstration #3 that I painted on my second day of Portland Open Studios. Now it's completed, giving it the much needed color and detail. $75.00, unframed.
