Good Times

Freedom and fun out in the salty surf.  Good times are had and the memories last a life time.  We remember and we return with the next generation to enjoy the wonderful sensation all over again.  
There is a beautiful illumination that comes when using pastels on a sanded surface.  I love the richness of the medium.  Simply yummy.

Such beautiful color in the water and sand. Great movement in the child running. Good memories!

Simply amazed at your beautiful pastels. Can't believe the light you have achieved in this painting. Beautifully done, Dori.

Not an easy subject. You handled the waves so well. Love the shadows too.
