Drawing: Pastel on Paper.
One of my road pieces which has been a important part of my work. Heading East from Napa toward the Big Valley on a Spring Day which couldn't decide whether the weather was good or bad. The subtle rainbow forecasts sun as we drove along the highway. I actually dedicated this painting to my father who used to come in our rooms and wake us by telling us that we had to be "dressed and 'outta here" in 5 minutes.
The faint rainbow is a challenge as I wanted to portray it either just arriving or just leaving and give it an ephemeral quality which I think I achieved. Pastel is a great medium for giving the effect of light.
