It was my pleasure to present my following pastel paintings from the fun and fabulous Los Gatos Plein Air 2016
"Statice Status Quo" by Gretha Lindwood, plein air pastel, 9"x18", sold; recent rains caused the brilliant colors of wildflowers at the Campbell perc. ponds. The lovely lavender, violet and white of wild statice and yellow of other flowering plants caught my eye.
"Reeds And Weeds" by Gretha Lindwood, plein air pastel, 9"x12", sold; another beautiful perc. pond near LG Creek, Campbell, CA. It was fun to see a turtle moseying across the grass near me to head down to the water.
"Hanging Out" by Gretha Lindwood, plein air pastel, 18"x9"; a view of LG Creek from the middle of the footbridge, Campbell, CA
"The Creek Rocks" by Gretha Lindwood, plein air pastel, 12"x12"; I've always enjoyed painting in the cool shade of Los Gatos Creek right downtown during the heat of the day
"Night School"by Gretha Lindwood, plein air pastel, 6"x9; the Los Gatos High School has been a favorite subject of mine for the past three years and this time I painted it as the sun was going down with a beautiful sunset in the sky above
"Tippy" by Gretha Lindwood, pastel 6"x6", a gift for our wonderful hostess for the past three years at Los Gatos Plein Air 2016; this is her personable little Maltese who always seems excited to see us..
