Baa-bee and Maa

"Baa-bee and Maa" (pastel, 8x6 inches)  click here to bid

Well, after a hectic week of crazy life away from the easel, I've finally finished this one that I had started on Monday. I suppose I'll never be able to completely cut animals out of my subject matter. I just have to get away from them for a while now and then... But these two were irresistible!

I spent a long day cropping and adjusting some sky photos this week, and I think I might paint some. I'm almost done with a drawing that I'll post tomorrow.

I've begun putting some thoughts to what new work to create for my 2-Woman Show later this year with friend and fellow pastelist Jeannette Cuevas. The exhibit will be at Cactus Jack's from October 20 through the end of the year.


  1. Rita don't you ever stop painting animals because you're terrific at it! This painting stopped me in my did it again...just beautiful!
