In our Arizona Pastel Artists Assoc. we have a challenge. Several people are given an item to use in a painting. I chose to paint the "dishtowel" that was our group's challenge as a kite. Here it is: "Runaway Kite"
Barbara paints primarily from reference photos which she, her husband and friends have taken. Her focus when approaching a new painting is to capture the mood which inspired the photo or still life set up in her studio.
