Winter Stream Oil

Welcome to the first entry of my blog.  I am happy to share my artwork and hope you enjoy it.  I did this painting of a creek near my home in oil pastel, a new medium for me.  I really like the soft look that I was able to achieve.  The painting is 5x7 matted to fit an 8x10 frame and is available in my ETSY shop.
