A Calling of the Heart - pastel seascape

A Calling of the Heart (16 x 20 dry pastel) sold

My heart is visiting Bandon, Oregon, so I thought I would share this earlier seascape I painted from the magnificent beaches there. I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday weekend.


  1. I am so glad I found your blog! Love your painting... very very beautiful!
    Have a great weekend,

  2. Love this piece... I'm there - can hear the waves and smell the sea air:)

  3. That's me, right around the foremost rock, lying down as the lovely cadence of the waves lull me into a euphoric stupor... Beautiful.


  4. Nice to have found your blog...lovely work! Pastels are one of my favorite media - can't resist those luscious colours! I also love to work in oil. Your pet portraits show so much character, and wonderful use of light. You can find me at if you like - hope you'll stop by sometime! I'll follow your work.

  5. your work is breathtaking! I wanted to pop in and say "hi" from the Flying Lessons e-course. -Robin
