Original Pastel Painting

I love that we’ve made our new home in Texas, but at heart, I’m just a California Girl. There are many things that I miss about California: my family, the beach, my old church family, the beach, California Poppies carpeting the hills and did I mention I miss the beach!?


  1. There’s something ‘haunting’ about this painting and I mean that in the best of ways. It’s old-world yet modern. Her mouth and eyes are from today but her face and clothing look like days gone past. BEAUTIFUL

  2. Thanks, Joe! I agree with your “haunting” description. The scene in the movie where Johannes Vermeer (Colin Firth) poses Griet (Scarlett Johansson) was SO incredibly powerful! It was indeed truly haunting!
    I just wish I could get a “true” photo of the painting with all its luster and gorgeous colors. This picture simply doesn’t do it justice.
    I love this painting too! I often wonder if Scarlett would like to have it. 😉

  3. Hi, Nancy. Wow, this is a great site. I love how the images are posted along with my comment to Facebook. Who created your Web site for you? It’s a phenomenal marketing strategy! 🙂 Cheers! Jon.
