Day 29 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Beau & The Oak | Pastel | 9 x 12

Too Bad, so sad...can't upload my painting photo.
Took a 6 day hiatus - not really!  Just had 2 competitions, 1 ARTIST IN RESIDENCY application, and a rental inspection to deal with.  Oh well... Such is life.

If ever I can get this painting to upload, it is something I have long wanted to paint.  Met Shannon Martinez of Winters over a year go and she kept mentioning the magnificent oak on the top of the family's Winters property filled with vineyards.  Tried two times to capture the huge span of this oak but just couldn't find the right angle.  A month ago, she sent me several pictures of the oak but more importantly, the Lab named Beau.  He's a little bigger in this rendition, or maybe the Oak is a little smaller, but none the same, they seem happy with each other in this painting.
