This pastel painting is done on La Carte pastel card and measure 19"x26" and is done with soft pastel. Like the painting before this one, the reference photo was taken while driving along the freeway. It seems to me as we cut up our enviroment with roads or whatever, we take some of the best scenery and put it out for everyone to see if you are quick enough to notice. But there is no time to stop and be in the landscape. Instead the highways frame the landscapes often tearing them down the middle.
