Reworking a Pastel Painting, "Serenity"




"Serenity" is one of a series I painting based on a view at a nearby lake. The series has been enjoyed by many, with people often telling me how it reminds them of summer evenings at their cabin. But no one ever loved it enough to give it a home.

One of the nice things about pastel paintings is that the "paint" never "dries". So I decided to re- work this painting, to capture something that was missing. Well, it must have worked, because one of my regular collectors saw it and bought it immediately at it's first public viewing! SOLD to someone who will enjoy it for many years to come. Thank you!
