 Holiday  11X14 Pastel on Richeson Premium Sanded Paper  $150

I mentioned in an earlier post that I had purchased some deliciously colored pastels which I was anxious to try.  I knew I likely had those colors already but couldn't resist.

I started this painting in a completely abstract way and soon the images that were prevalent on our holiday showed up.  Amazingly this usually happens.  This might be one reason that I like going places. My husband can't see what the images are.  And here I thought they were pretty obvious.

I haven't posted for a few days.  Explanation below.  I like painting standing up and somehow I couldn't do that for a few days.

Below, you see on very sore big toe and big toe nail that ran into an even bigger steel ferry door.  The nail came off half way lengthwise and I said, "Oh darn!"  I actually didn't say anything.  I hurried back to the van to wrap it up as best I could and find the strongest pain killers we had on board for I knew I would need them.  I was right.

Port Townsend Watercolor 6x12 , looking towards Lighthouse

Its beautiful here with more dog taking their people for a walk looking out at the expanse of water and sea gulls everywhere.

Got very close to a heron this morning, eating its breakfast so watch for paintings to come.

Yesterday we drove all day to get to the sol duc waterfalls and the parking lot was so full that we had to give that hike up for a lost cause.  Next time we won't try to do something like that on a weekend. 
After all we know better.That is why we chose to take time off when the kids are going back to school.

Bought some beautifully colored pastels yesterday.  Couldn't resist.  It certainly isn't that I need more.  Itching to get home and give the colors a try.

Happy Long Weekend everyone.
