January 2015 Daily Paintings…or nearly

Okay, time to get started on the challenge of painting everyday, or nearly everyday.

The two paintings below were originally one long 6"x12"painting. I cut it in half then re-worked both sides to make two new 6"x6" paintings. Success!!
Canoe Path by Gretha Lindwood, 6"x6" pastel on sandpaper, based on a view of a lake near my home

Soft Whispers by Gretha Lindwood, 6"x6" pastel on sandpaper, based on a view of a lake near my home

A Gentle Afternoon by Gretha Lindwood, 5"x5" pastel on sandpaper, reminiscent of a nearby view
