"Textures I"

I had to let loose and do more abstracts. I did two "Texture" paintings in acrylic. I posted this horizontally, but it can work vertically or upside down. Whenever I do one of these, I don't want to sign them because I don't know where to sign it!!

"Lake Travis III"

This is another pastel painted on emerald green velour board.
I'm going to have to resupply myself soon as I only have one piece
of velour left. This scene is from the parking lot on the left side of
the Oasis. After I parked one day I snapped a photo for this painting.
I don't think there is a bad view from any location at the Oasis!

"Pink Jazz"

This was fun! I tried another experiment. My good friend
Carol gave me several scraps of velour board left over from her
framing projects. I tried painting with pastels on this very
different surface and was surprised how much I enjoyed it.
The pastels handle totally different, but I was pretty pleased
with the outcome. The gal in this painting really has hair
the color I painted it!

"Hill Country II"

This is a pastel I painted from a drive by photo.
It's just the side of the road around the Oasis
restaurant. I snapped the photo from my car
window. Sometimes it's the little things that
inspire me.
