Pastel Demo Painting At Fairweather House & Garden

In spite of a downpour last night at Seaside, Oregon, there was a good crowd who turned out for Seaside's monthly Art Walk. Acclaimed nature photographer, Neal Maine, and I were featured artists at Fairweather House & Garden. Neal spoke of his latest photo adventure to the Arctic focusing on the plight of the polar bear. Below is the pastel painting I did as a live painting demonstration. I titled it Quiet Anticipation in reference to the theme of this month's exhibit of the same name.

"Nostalgic Path" - New Pastel Painting

Based on a photo I took at Lewis and Clark Park in the Columbia River Gorge area I painted this little beauty. I think it has a bit of a dream-like quality and I feel a bit wistful when looking at it. This will be available at Fairweather House & Garden in Seaside, Oregon on Saturday, February 7th where I will be one of the featured artists. Come watch me do a pastel painting at the gallery during the Seaside  First Saturday Art Walk from 5:00 to 7:00pm!
