6x8, Soft Pastel
Morning Calm was painted in my hotel room while visiting the Oregon Coast. I particularly like the ocean and all things nautical...especially in the early morning or late evening hours. Everything seems just a little more sleepy and peaceful. While painting it, I just wanted to climb up in this little dingy and take a nap. I may paint a larger version of this one since I didn't have my best pastels with me and struggled a bit with getting just the right colors. "We'll see" (that's my new mantra).
