14″X11″ pastel on sanded paper

“Do anything, but let it produce joy.”

Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

I love the light this time of year, especially as it falls in streaks and highlights grass heads in the morning light.

I started this painting on toned paper and by blocking in my darks.  I love creating an abstract composition by connecting the darks.
