pastel painting
My love of travel inspires many of my Pastel Paintings.  I enjoy local plein air painting in Southern California and the San Pasqual Valley area near my home. My Photographs were taken on various trips to Europe including France, Italy, England, Scotland & Ireland and my home country of Australia.
