Desert Hills – Daily Painting

September 29th, 2007

“Desert Hills” – 5″ x 7″ pastel

The colors of the desert near Palm Springs provided the inspiration for this small pastel painting, which I worked on today. It was quite gray and drizzly today at the show, but it didn’t seem to dampen the spirits of our visitors.

Just to give you an idea of what a difference a frame can make, here’s an example of how this little painting might look with a simple gold frame

  1. What a softness you have achieved using pastels. Actually I am double-minded about frames. Lots of large acrylic and probably oil paintings on canvas don’t even use a frame these days, and the picture just speaks for itself. This gold one is okay though but still detracts a bit for me. Of course I really dislike seeing French impressionist paintings in fake gold highly decorative frames. Keep it simple I reckon.
