7″x5″ pastel on sanded paper

This is a study for a larger painting. I think the pink makes a nice background. I am painting from a photo, and the photo has a beautiful lake behind the cactus. Although it is “real” it looks so strange. I recently have enjoyed changing sky and background colors from reality to a “better palette”.

Please enjoy a celebration of pink paintings this month, in honor of breast cancer awareness. I paint for my friends and family who have fought the good fight against cancer, for their families, and for all caregivers who help along with the journey toward a healthy self (body, soul, and spirit). In my strokes of pink, are prayers of strength and healing.

Please let me know what you think
