Elva's #98 and 99

I call this the 'Sexy Lady Moon.'  It is as if she wears a beret that almost covers one eye.  Saturday night I lay in my sleeping bag and watched the moon, and tried to burn the scene into my mind.  We were camping at Lava Beds National Monument.  Then, in the morning, I sat on a rock and drew the branch and distant trees from almost the same spot.  Added paint while I made coffee.

Another pelican painting inspired from the day I got to sketch pelicans on the coast and then photograph them.  Here a young Herrmann's gull is trying to steal the pelican's fish. ... painted in my Stillman and Birn sketch book.
