24″ x 18″ pastel on sanded paper
This painting started out as a “spring in Texas”, it was the last of the Queen Anne’s Lace for the year, but the painting knew that it was time for summer. I started it about 6 weeks ago, and wasn’t happy with it. I got it out and “saved” it. I used denatured alcohol to wash out all the big blooms and then added some. Right yellow and red.
