Pastel Painting, "Tempest"


"Tempest" 12x16 inches, pastel on board
Available through Etsy


This is a bit more abstract than usual for me and I really enjoyed it.  I used all of my favorite colors, and tried to capture a feeling instead of a scene.  It was inspired by a piece of music that I heard at the Oregon Symphony with my father, "Become Ocean" by the very talented John Luther Adams.  I felt so lucky to hear it live - the Oregon Symphony always does an amazing job, but this was quite an experience.  

Thanks for looking!
