"Wild Willow" from Elizabeth Mowry's Landscape Meditations

This is one of the few finished paintings I've done with pastels.
The more I work with the medium the more I enjoy it. This past winter one of my daughters and I spent a considerable amount of time doing art together. Amy's favorite medium is pastels, and her works show her talent with them. I envy how simple she makes it look; and her results. Watching her and experimenting has brought me to understand pastels a little, and I'm no longer so intimidated.
I like that they're messy to work with, too.

Tracey, the pastel looks great. For someone who's just started in pastels in the last couple of weeks you've got the technique down very well. All of your work looks great.

This absolutely rocks !!! It looks soft and dreamy like how it feels to be under one of those exact trees... Beautiful work
