BEFORE THE DINNER CROWD is a 12x9 pastel on PastelBord. It may look familiar because I did a 5x7 study of it a while ago. This larger version is one of several of my pieces at the Windrush Gallery in Sedona, AZ. If you're interested in this piece, click on the title, it'll take you to Windrush. BEFORE THE DINNER CROWD is another Parisian scene...the Rotonde Cafe.

Today there will be a Halloween event in the little amphitheater park, here in my Villa Rica neighborhood. My studio is a converted warehouse loft, adjacent to a shopping strip of antique shops, restaurants and the Villa Rica Police Station. The amphitheater is at the far end of the shopping strip. Later today, I, with my wonderful Nikon D-80, will walk past the antique shops, restaurants and police station to the park; I'm looking forward to seeing all the children. I'm missing my 6 year old grandson, who's in Anchorage now; his dad is stationed there. I'm sending him little packages so he won't forget me.


  1. These are wonderful. I love the colors and composition. Do you take photographs in the cafes, or sketch? Going to France sounds fantastic!

  2. Thanks, Elaine. I take photos
