Queen Anne's Lace Pastel Painting

'Summer Breeze' 5x7 pastel
This little painting brings me fond memories of my summer vacation to Nantucket. It was a gorgeous day but quite breezy. We had luckily made all of our plane and bus connections and were waiting at the dock to board the ferry to Nantucket. I spotted a small field full of Queen Anne's Lace next to the terminal building. I had to get some pictures. They were just dancing in the wind! I even took some video to remind me of how graceful they looked.
My workshop on painting wildflowers is this Sunday and I can't wait. The class is full but I am taking names for a waiting list in case anyone is interested.

I look forward to your MY World paintings when I check my e mail every morning.Your paintings have soul-and as one of my teachers pointed out once, if it doesn't have soul don't bother.
