Halloween House- moonlight

Pastel, 9"x12"

Moonlit night, a scarey sight, glimmer of light, a dose of fright– Who dares to knock?

Found leaf

5" x 7"

Walking down the street,
or strolling through the woods.
Leaves blowing in the wind.
A special leaf will emerge from among the others– a little more perfectly formed, maybe a mix of colors; unique as a snow crystal– just like people.

Sketch in Degas garrett


Degas painted real people doing real things and usually did sketches before doing a painting. I did this quick sketch in our garrett room of the
Degas House in New Orleans so that I could experience doing artwork where he did it.

Tribute: to Degas-ballerina on the wall*

Pastel & pencil
5x7, $125.

We are staying at the
Degas House in New Orleans where French Impressionist Edgar Degas painted while residing in his maternal relatives' house in America. This is a pastel sketch inspired by a painting of ballerinas on the wall in the room.
From here I attended a ballet class at the New Orleans Ballet Theater.
