Introducing my newest painting; “Family Ties”! I am so excited to have finished this pastel piece! Originally I started with the opposite colors of what is showing right now. It was a difficult piece for me to do…it took a lot of thinking, but the end result was absolutely gorgeous! The original photo was taken by me at Pawtuckaway State Park. I decided to turn it into a pastel painting. Our kayaks are looking on to what we call “Frisella Island”. We usually dock our kayaks there to eat lunch, have cocktails and pick blueberries. It is an awesome time!
