Pastel on Canson Mi-Teinte ‘Tex’ paper (burgundy) – 35cm x 50cm

Another in my series of paintings inspired by the bush surroundings in which I live. I refer to mornings like this as ‘sparkly’, which amuses some of my friends. I sold this one today (9th October 2011) at the Heathcote Spring Art show, and I also sold a couple of others, so it has been a great weekend for me – AND, I won the Peoples’ Choice award (for Dabyminga Junction). Still trying to wipe the smile off my face!

I am a pastel artist living in country Victoria, Australia. My subjects vary, ranging from landscapes, portraiture, animal studies, figurative, life drawing, still life and I find the challenge of painting water particularly enjoyable.

    WOW! Wonderful Lynda, it’s all Sparkly from the rain this morning here in London.

  • Hi Don – great to hear from you and thanks for the lovely comment. We have also had some rain over the weekend, but could do with some more.

    Congratulations lynda! So well deserved. Like all of your work, this one is gorgeous! I love how you are able to get that “sparkly” feeling into your paintings

  • Thanks for the great comment Di – I have an achey face from smiling! I was so surprised to sell three AND win a prize! It’s been a great week artistically, as I sold one last weekend too. Now I am itching to get at those pastels!!!! (My studio is still in a shemozzel of a mess as I am in the throes of repainting the walls)! Might have to have a celebratory chardonnay now! LOL!

    You are yourself a ‘sparkly’ lady, Lynda, this shows in every painting you display.
    Fabulous pastel with a magnificent palette of colours especially the vibrant greens in the foreground…Never tire of seeing your landscapes

  • Ha Ha! You wouldn’t have thought me very ‘sparkly’ yesterday Corinne! After climbing up and down a ladder all day re-painting my studio interior I was a very ‘snarly’ lady!!!! I ached all over! I think even my eyelashes were aching! Thank you for this fantastic comment ….. Bisous xx

    superb lyndy lou, you lift my spirits with this one, I have sparkly mornings and juicy trees in my garden! :)) xx

  • G’day Ms. Riddy you beautiful woman you! Great to hear from you, and if I have lifted your spirits I am very happy!!! We have had some stunning sparkly mornings this spring, (and now we have changed the clocks we have sparkly evenings too)! I can’t describe the trees around here as ‘juicy’ – they are more ‘stringy’! LOL!
