Water scene

PASTEL  -  9  X  12  INCHES
WATER  SCENE

Voici un pastel avec une scène d'eau rafraîchissante!  Exécuté dans le  coin d'ombre de la cour, essayant de me cacher en cette journée chaude, humide et collante......  C'est là que je me retire l'été pour peindre, lire ou juste rêver en regardant les fleurs du jardin.

A refreshing water scene done in pastel!  I painted this in the shadiest corner of my backyard on a hot, damp and sticky day. That's where I like to work , read and sit to enjoy the view of the garden.

It must be nice to sit there and it shows through in the painting. The colors are luminous and beautifully bold. You make me want to take out my box of pastels!
You have a beautiful garden, Helen, enjoy!

Que ce soit dans tes pastels ou tes aquarelles, on retrouve toujours cette belle harmonie de couleur et de lumière.
Bravo et bon week-end, chère Helen.

Helen, this is absolutely beautiful! I tried to enjoy a spot like that in my yard, I'd be eaten alive by mosquitoes. Nasty little things they are.
