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
