Evenfall, 5x7"

Evenfall, pastel on board by Adriana Meiss

   A new year, a new easel to replace the one I got years ago from the curb, and lots of new ideas I'm eager to put into paper or board!

   There was so much frenzy during the whole month of Dec, that I felt I needed a long period of rest. My first pastel of the year was started just 3 days ago and although is coming along very well, it is not ready yet, so I'm posting a small painting done last year for Plowshares. It's based on a photo from Alverna Heights, near Green Lakes State Park.  The body of water in the middle ground doesn't exist but I thought it added interest to the scene.

Some of my plans for this year include painting in oils and selling small paintings from this blog ( yeah, I know I have said this before but this time I've already taken the first steps).  I wish you perseverance to succeed with yours!

Thank you Paula! Best wishes to you too for the new year. I'll have to go to Old Forge to see your paintings in the winter show.

I agree - beautiful painting, Adriana! The "lake" in the middle really adds so much. I put the Fingerlakes Plein Air event on my calendar. Hopefully I can at least attend the show and sale this year!

Thank you Donna! I do hope you can make it to the event, but why not participate yourself? I'm crossing my fingers so it won't be raining cats and dogs this time!
