Waters Edge, Chapel Pond

Another large pastel building on the last one. I'm pushing the drawing a bit, straying from the photographic to the calligraphic.
In the early morning Chapel pond can be so still and the water so dark it acts as a mirror. My intent is to depict reflected clouds, water and rocks with an expressive markmaking that recaptures that feeling I had standing on the shore. pastel 18x26in.

Cairn on Big Crow

Something about Cairns appeals to me. They appear like sentinals along the path. They mark the way with a sculptural presence that show us that someone has been here before. finished stage. pastel 18x26in. SOLD

Which Way to Turn

Driving along Sweet air Rd in Baltimore Co. MD at sunset I have often passed this small Methodist church and wondered if the the world was trying to lead us away. The setting just feeds my facination with roadsigns and their graphic impact on the landscape and how they not only tell us where to go but where to look. oil 9x9in. SOLD
