Low Country Spring

'Low Country Spring' 8x10 pastel

Last year for spring break we went down to Harbor Island South Carolina. We had terrible weather and Caitlin was sick the whole time but I did get some photos! The azaleas were in bloom and we would pass this big group of azaleas at the base of some trees dripping in moss. It was beautiful! I am working on azaleas. I haven't painted them in

What beauty I have found!! Came upon your site by "happenstance" and what enjoyment I'm having going through your archives. And!...I'm getting the urge to have a "go" with pastels! I'm an ink/watercolor artist...so this would be out of the box for me, but I think I'll do it. Thanks for the inspiration! Keep painting! BJR
