Another pastel. This time it's an 8x10 of another view from the Marginal Way at Ogunquit. I've been thinking of doing a study of Isaac Levitan, the late 19th century Russian landscapist. I just borrowed a book from the library. It has great pictures, but it's in Russian. I've always felt that if he were better known, he would be recognized as one of the great painters of the 19th century. He is that, but just not that well known, since I think, most, if not all his paintings are in Russia. Let me see what I can discover.
