It’s been busy around here lately so posting to my blog was set aside for a few days. I’m finally caught up and looking forward to browsing everyone’s blog posts. I have a great book that I’ll be reviewing in the next day or so, but until then here is my latest painting.
Mt. Camel Beach is near a friend of mine in Australia who took a great photograph that I was able to use for my most recent oil pastel. If anyone is familiar with this beach, just know that I flipped the image so the sea cliffs are on the right-side of the painting. The photograph was shot on a gray day so I created some atmospheric magic with my OPs.
This painting is larger than normal for me, 16 x 20, but I have to say the lighting was a lot of fun to work with.
I hope you enjoy and please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or comments. Thanks and have a great evening or day depending on when you read this post! Mary

Thank you so much for your lovely comments! Mary
A serene scene amplified by the subtle use of pelagic birds (how free they are!). One can taste the salt on one’s lips.
Thanks so much for commenting, your reaction was what I was looking for ~ Mary
Hi Mary, this is a wonderful painting. The light is great and I can see the water reflecting it. Great job!
Thank you Patricia, appreciate your nice comments!
