"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.
