No Ride!

No Ride!
24 x 18, pastel

This painting provided many challenges for me. The shape of the cable car, several figures relating to one another, and a desire to keep it loose and somewhat abstracted. I don't expect every painting to be a success (it would indicate I wasn't trying hard at challenging myself) but I can usually find something that went well even in the worst painting.

I will do better next time.

I think you captured the moment perfectly. The story behind the snapshot and the hillarious memories involving the cable car make this one of my new favorites!
