Lovely Ladies

These all began from giant puzzle pieces which are approximately 9"x7".  I didn't think to take a picture of them before creating these, but here are the final pieces.  I am swapping the top and bottom ones, and keeping the middle one.  I have a Paris theme going, and wanted it for a companion piece.

Mini canvas

I love summer.  It is a time where the warm weather and beckoning beaches slow down the pace a little.  I love to sit on the beach and relax with a good book or some soothing music.  I love to grab my camera and catch a beautiful sunset. This canvas was inspired by some of those gorgeous changes of color in the night sky.

Top canvas: Inspired by a summer beach sunset  (This one will be sent to the winner of the PAO July lottery which I am hosting.)

Bottom canvas: Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

2 1/2 " canvas done with pan pastels.  These were fun and will do some more.  They were easy and quick.  I just had to decide the subject and begin.
