Whidbey Island view pastel painting

Strawberry Point along the Sweet Saratoga
11 x 14

A very fine evening was spent here. This is part of my plein air series - can you hear the geese in the background? The field behind where I was positioned for doing this painting is the same field where the Snow Geese visit in the Skagit Valley every winter. Thousands of them!

The main land mass in the painting is Strawberry Point (where I live) on the east side of Whidbey Island. When I got home and looked reeeallly closely at my reference photos I realized I could actually see my house in the pictures!
This piece is part of my current gallery showing at: Scott Milo Gallery in Anacortes, Washington.
