"Pastel Expressions" Wrap Up

September 4, 2015

The “ Pastel Expressions” Exhibit at SAMA Ligonier was a great success.  PPAL and CPPS produced a fine array of paintings for this exhibit, and juried it well. SAMA did a beautiful job of displaying our work and promoting it online and with their very informative brochure.  I felt greatly honored to be asked to give a brief talk at the Lunch a l’Art event on  Thursday, August 20.  I talked about pastels and why they are such a captivating medium:  how well they interact with other mediums, how wonderful it is to draw with color, how the drawing becomes a painting, and how instantly gratifying it can be to place those beautiful color strokes on the paper.  I came with lots of supplies, papers, pastel and more to share with the very receptive audience.
