Warm Southern Beach Seascape Painting by Poucher

"Warm Water"
9x12" Soft pastel on Wallis Museum
Available through my Daily Painters Gallery
Yes, I am still alive. We've been camping for about 3 weeks mainly at Fort DeSoto park in St Petersburg, Florida. I'm working on a system to stay connected and continue to sell my art from the road but it's a bit complicated without a fancy cell phone. Perhaps I will have to give in. My pastel paintings can still be purchased through Daily Painters but shipping will take a bit longer than my usual 3 days.

"Warm Water" was painted at Myrtle Beach State Park on our way south.

Dune Path to the Moors Pastel Landscape Painting

"Dune Path to the Moors"
Soft pastel on Belgian Mist 12x9"
Available through my Daily Painters Gallery
I've been taking a daily walk out into the dunes this week with a limited pastel palette and a set time limit of about an hour to create a study. The sand was warm on my bare feet and I was blocked from the breeze by a large dune. This path seems to be a favorite of deer, coyotes and fox (at least at this quieter time of the year). There were still a few dried beach plums around that I decided to save for the wildlife. An extreme high tide gave me reason to pastel quickly before the water view was gone.

Duck Portrait, Daily Pastel Painting by Poucher

Soft pastel on Wallis, 5x7"
Available through my Daily Painters Gallery
I've been told that I need to write more on my blog so here is a little poem by Ogden Nash:

The Duck

Behold the duck. 
It does not cluck. 
A cluck it lacks. 
It quacks. 
It is specially fond
Of a puddle or pond. 
When it dines or sups, 
It bottoms ups.

Provincetown Yellow Dory Pastel Painting by Poucher

Soft pastel on Wallis 5x7"
Available through Julie Heller East Gallery, Provincetown, MA

I used a yellow dry pastel underpainting for this piece and kept a light touch to allow the specks of yellow to shine through. This is a new dory moored in the West End of Provincetown harbor. I love this old style of boat that helps me to imagine what this historic fishing village was like long ago.

Day Off, Cape Cod Fishing Boats Painting by Poucher

"Day Off"
Soft pastel on Wallis Museum paper 8x10"

The fishing boats Eileen and Three Reasons rest in Provincetown harbor on a calm summer day.
I'm in Minnesota where the current temperature is -4 degrees and the windchill -24 degrees so picked a warm, sunny summer day painting to help ease the chill!
