Pastels

Prior to 2015, I knew very little regarding pastels as an artistic medium. When I first started, I created works typically no larger than 5x7". I settled on that size or smaller because I was unsure of how to mix colors properly, apply marks upon the surface or create textural depth. To gain a better appreciation, I began taking classes with two pastel painters in 2015. I learned the proper use and various techniques involved to move beyond a beginner level.

Using landscapes, whether it is a national park, a botanical garden, a wildlife refuge or any open space creates a personal connection between the viewer and the artwork.

My current series exhibited at Emma's Cafe in Stow, MA, features places within a national park and a national wildlife refuge corresponding with the 100th Anniversary of National Parks. The pastels depict a specific place viewed at different times of the day or during recent trips to these special locations.

 

Six of my pastels were displayed at Wheaton College in the Mars Arts & Humanities building. Ellen Llewellyn, Evan Morse, and myself participated in an Alumnae/i Art Exhibit. Read articles about the exhibit:
