Fall Canal and Two Years

It's been two years to the day that I started this blog. I have covered a lot of ground in two years, but have stayed in the same places to find my landscape subjects. I hope that those of you who look at this blog now and then have seen some progress, at least in the pastels. This is a view of the canal from early this morning on 8x10 Wallis paper, which received a bit of acrylic wash to set it up for the pastel layers.

Congratulations on your 2 years of blogging, Bob.

Yes Bob, I have seen quite a metamorphosis happening in your work. I count myself lucky to have tuned in early and be present to watch. This painting is a good example of the beauty you achieve with color and strong drawing abilities. Your tenacity and work ethic will take you far. I can't wait to see what the next 2 years will bring.
Happy bloggy birthday! Makes sure to make a wish when you blow out the candles!

Casey and Loriann, Thank you. Art blogging has been great, especially because there are so many people like yourselves who create the environment from which we can all learn through our struggles and successes.
