Last winter my friend Bear Miller painted my portrait. Here I'm getting him back. 11x14 pastel. Working in pastel is the best. You can layer, erase, scrape, brush off, wash. Much more forgiving than oil.

At dawn in Keene Valley I grab a coffee and walk to a small pond where they used to harvest ice in the old days. It's right across from the local school. This particular morning a cloud hovered over the pond and dissipated as the sun rose and revealed the mountains behind. I chose to focus on the cloud before it disappeared because it seemd such an ethereal presence. 11x17in pastel

Moving Cloud -pastel 11x14in
this is the view from the field at Keene Valley Central School at dawn. I noticed this pinkish cloud rise up in an arc and disappear in the sun.
