A Summer Landscape

Pastel Painting
The view from our hilltop inspired me a few evenings ago to paint this summer landscape.
It is a familiar scene that never fails to move me.   Often there will be cattle grazing on the hillside or deer in the meadow.

In the sky there may be a Red-Tailed Hawk on the wing.




Moth Hummingbird
Moths and butterflies flutter to the wildflowers that grow there.








For sure and for certain it is a place that is close to my heart.

Do you have a special spot that inspires you to paint,  take a photo, or write a poem?    If so I hope you will share.

Have a blessed week.

Hugs Debbie

  1. Wow, beautiful photos and painting. Even though it's hot right now (and just about always), Florida does have plenty of beautiful places that are photo or sketch worthy.

  5. Wow, that view is beautiful, Debbie! In my urban surroundings I like to walk to the river nearby and enjoy looking at the water and the boats.

  6. Beautiful painting! Lovely photos too. You do live in a gorgeous place. I have tried to pet those sphinx moths, but they always fly away-they are so fuzzy and cute.

  7. Oh my, Debbie! What a beautiful painting and rendered so skillfully! I'm thrilled it is in PASTEL. I hope you love the medium as much as I do! It looks so peaceful - some place I'd love to look upon or walk through as often as possible. Trees are my refuge. Anywhere there is a group of trees offering shade or a place to sit and rest for awhile. So restoring. I can see why this place in your painting is special to you. How clever of you to do a painting of it so you can glance at it as often as you wish!

  13. I love your landscape Debbie - very impressionistic. I used to work a lot in pastels but found it very messy and dusty to work with! You do live in a beautiful spot, no wonder that you love it so.

  17. I genuinely love your beautiful pastel painting. Such a peaceful scene but oh, Debbie...my heart missed a beat when I saw the incredible sunset or sunrise photo. I would LOVE to paint it. May I have permission? No pressure to say yes. I may cry, but honest...no pressure.
    I was telling Carol B (above) about a British show with Martin Clune called, A man and His Dogs. Fascination stuff about the very beginning of dogs, onwards.
    (netfix) Knowing you are both dog lovers I thought you may like it also. Have a wonderful and blessed week, my friend.
