"Afternoon Shadows", Pastel, 16" x 6 3/4"

This is something I painted two years ago. At the time I was very frustrated with it so it never saw the light of day. I pulled it out a few days ago to see if there was something I could do to "" it..... with fresh eyes and a new perspective, I let the painting tell me what it needed... I listened. This didn't turn out the way I had intended, but I am willing to accept what it wants to be. I am calling it "Winter Afternoon Shadows". It is painted on UArt 600 (which might have been part of the problem, as I really don't like 600 grit). I do remember using Mount Visions and Great Americans, anything else is a blur............
