Going to the Oasis - Plein Air Study

Our painting group met yesterday morning at the Oasis. I did this pastel study of the entrance. If you haven't been to the Oasis lately, you won't recognize it. It's undergoing massive construction. They have already completed a 4 story parking garage and are in the process of building a very large hotel and additional shops. The one consistent thing - great views and mediocre food. This is the 2nd pastel plein air I've recently done. I like working with pastels because it lightens my load. Much less to carry and very light weight. I like easy!! 9x12

It has been several years since we've been to the Oasis. Parking garage is totally contradictory to image of the place of old. Sorta sad to see the old hippie atmosphere turn gentrified.

Ah, you made me laugh at the usual "mediocre food". Great to see they are doing something really nice out there. Your pastel is lovely. I especially like the yellow umbrella and urn full of flowers, and archways and palm trees. So I loved it all. LOL!!
