October and November Pastels

Ok so I am now spending lots of time at painting with pastels and continue to love the rich colors it can produce.  Let me know what you think of these new paintings.

"An Apple A Day"

"Sharing my Plum"
5"x7" Pastel on Cardstock
Wanted to try more fruit in pastels and had this beautiful plum on hand.

"Orenco Station"
5"x 7" Pastel on Cardstock
Took this picture when I was visiting my daughter in Hillsboro and
just had to get a snapshot of the beautiful colors of Autumn.

NICE, Shirleen! The apple is awesome (love your shadows), but I also really like the plums and how you rendered the flesh. Plus the tablecloth is a nice touch! Don't you love how we see ART everywhere? I try to keep a camera with me because I never know when I might see a future painting. Cell phones work, too. :)
