Sounds of Wolf Trap

Lorrie Herman is a sweetheart and she has an uncanny ability to carve extra hours out of the day. Because of her, I joined Northern Virginia Artists League, a group with a plein air emphasis for which she serves as President. My first jaunt out with them was to the International Children's Festival at Wolf Trap, per their invitation by the Arts Council of Fairfax County. Although I tried a different location first, I settled into the coolness behind the main meadow next to the gurgling stream.

This painting was almost finished on site, then I worked on further definition in my studio.

Pastel on Wallis, 5x7

Really like the water scenes... I could feel the water's peace and strength at the same time.
