‘August Meadow, Yosemite Valley’ is almost done…..if I say it’s finished I’ll see something that needs to be ‘fixed’. I love the colors and textures of the meadows. These silver grey plants were standing in grasses that ranged from rust to gold to green. The edge of the forest created the background. The tips of conifers were catching the late afternoon light.
The painting will sit a while before framing. It’s not as dark in real life….if it looks dark on your monitor. I can’t tell where the ‘correct’ tilt of my monitor should be to see things realistically. That makes it hard to adjust photographs.
18.5 x 26.5 Pastel $1600 Framed to 24 x 32 in German silver color aluminum with Plexiglas.
My ‘Christmas Cactus’ is blooming nicely. It sits on my desk during the winter. During warmer months it’s outside. I received this plant for my birthday from my adopted mom, Joann, about 6 years ago. I painted it a few years ago.
