I still am not fond of pastels, but managed to create a piece I like enough to sell or frame from a photo I took of the old building wall across the street from Shoji, our favorite sushi bar, in Portland.
I like the subtle colors and the overall composition. I often take pictures of odd textures in both urban and country setting — paint peeling, gridded steel gates. It is one way I begin to generate ideas for my paintings.
