Early Stars, 20x16" -- sold

I'm back after a 2-week vacation visiting my family in Costa Rica. I took over a 1000 pics and have so many plans and ideas I would like to put into practice in the near future.

The show went well. Two paintings were sold before the reception day and one more after I came back. I'm still hoping to sell at least one more before the show is over.

I have to thank my friend Marybeth for insisting that I painted some night scenes for the show. As it was, I only had time to paint this one, but it received very good comments. A lady described to me what she felt about it, which was exactly what I wanted to convey with it--what a nice feeling!

This is beautiful Adriana. I love the glow in the sky near the horizon and across the grass. Makes me want to dream - it has a great atmosphere, very soft and inviting.

I look forward to seeing some of the work from the photos from Costa Rica.

Hi Elaine, and thank you! This pastel is one of my favorites.
I need to get an external drive before transferring my photos to the computer, but I'm looking forward to painting different scenes.

I truly love this painting Adriana. You do so well with pastels and I'm looking forward to seeing more from Costa Rica.! I love the way you painted the sky and the hint of light which makes the painting glow.
