"An Evening In May" 5x8 Pastel

I guess I am doing a bit of Spring cleaning of sorts these days. I have been working to finish pieces that have been trying to get my attention for the better part of a year or so. This little guy is one such painting. It has been moved around from the book shelf to the wall back to the book shelf again. It was a color study for another painting at one time. I have enjoyed looking at it knowing that I would eventually get around to putting on the finishing touches. It represents the evening light at the coast here in Southern California.


  1. Really well done Joe, the action in the wave is captured wonderfully.

  2. I absolutely love this painting!

  3. Thanks for the comments. They are always appreciated. - Joe
