Waking Dream SOLD

Price: $100.00

This tiny pastel sketch was hidden in my sketchbox for years. Recently, I pulled it out to discover the colors matched those of a new painting on my easel. Inspired by the synergy of the discovery, I began another painting based on it. As I painted, I discovered my heart centered in the landscape. I am sure you can feel it.

Somehow taking this little pastel out of the box let my heart out with it. 

Original Pastel on Sanded Panel, Unframed.

6" x 6"

This in an original pastel on archival, sanded panel. It should be framed under conservation glass, with a spacer or mat between the surface of the painting and the glazing. 

Handmade pastels are created of pure pigments from the earth, sugar-like granules held together with water, rolled into cigar-sized sticks and air dried. Allied to a rough or sanded surface, the crystalline granules refract light, pure spectrum color, brilliance, illuminated. As you move, changing the angle from which you view the painting, the wavelengths of light move with you, giving the painting vibrancy not found in other media.

I first began working with pastels when my Aunt Agnes gave me a box of 45 Rembrandt pastels for my 12th birthday. In college, I sold my first pastel, a landscape triptych with an abstract woman reclining within the landscape. I was far too young and naive to comprehend the significance of this early work. Now in my 60s, it makes me laugh to think of the Creator's humor in showing me this vision of myself at such an early age. And it gives me faith in knowing that we all express the Creator in ways we cannot see or understand every day.
