This pastel painting (not completely finished) has been in progress for quite some time. I am nearly there. It depicts our grandchildren at Chuckie Cheese where we have had good times together. It is not meant to be authentic as to placement. Rather I wanted a montage effect. I used many reference pictures taken last year.

If you look very hard you can see the top of our agave. It looks like Medussa. After I painted three agaves in a series, the plant decided to grow that middle stalk. We had it cut down and this is the outcome.

I painted this in pastels after taking many pictures of a plant on our street that had hundreds of blooms. I hope I did it justice.

This is beginning of the end. Quite interesting but wish it wasn't happening.

This is #3 in the series of Agave paintings in pastel. Some bad news. The plant that I am painting is growing the center spike which means it is on its way out. It gave us much pleasure.
