Portland Winterscape Three, abstract pastel painting by Carol Engles

8 x 11 watercolor and pastel on paper. Another Portland "Winterscape". Spring is right around the corner though and then the Northwest will be brilliant green! I may have to do some Portland "Springscapes." I love living in Southern California - the weather is hard to beat; but, I also loved living in the Northwest. So beautiful!

Enjoy viewing the changes in your work, and yes, spring will soon bring new color palettes!!

Thanks Elizabeth! It so interesting in Southern California this time of year - Temps in the 70's, daffodils and fruit trees are blossoming and in the distance are snowcapped mountains. Truly unique!
