silver pot pastel

Painting figures in a beach setting is a favorite of mine. The light and the colors inspire me to be loose in my brushstrokes and not too detailed. I also love the casualness...capturing that moment in time where someone does something for an instant.

Street Fair

Part of a series I did putting people in ordinary environments. Still working on doing this in a looser way.
