sunrise over sibley hospital


8x10 pastel and watercolor on wallis
I may work with this more. I really liked the contrast between the hard edge of the building, the softer diffuse edges of the buildings lost in the trees and the lacey trees.

Chewse me was the next clever statement from the commenters for the "big chew." Register here.


Also my painting Canal Sunrise has been nominated for an award of best portrayal of a place on  Katherine's wonderful blog Making a Mark. Voting is closed... Let's see what happens!

Thanks Sara! I always think about what Richard McKinley tells me. You have to know your concept and see it before you start. Of course that doesn't mean close yourself to other happenings/mistakes. After all it is process. But you have to know where you are going in order to get there. Thanks for checking in.
