'Late Summer Afternoon' pastel by Ralphie Hendrix

Thank you Alicia for covering for me while I hosted my family. I appreciated the time and hope your show is very successful. I know you’ve sold at least one. This particular scene is located on the Alderpoint Road as you are heading into Garberville. On the road you pass over this ridge. I was quite taken by the warm light of the afternoon. This is a favorite of mine and so fun to paint.


  1. What a beautiful painting! The golden grass and the flowing purple shadows contrast and compliment each other, which all add to a lovely composition.

  2. Ah! I know the spot well and you've painted it beautifully.
