Sorting pastels ... this is the hard part
This is my most indulgent box of pastels. It consists of nothing but square or rectangular shaped colors, which I prefer for the straight edges. It was too full, and I couldn't find anything. Then I just had to treat myself to a nice set of Terry Ludwig pastels, which are very soft and a perfect size and shape.
These three images are included in the Online Silent Auction for the Art League in Alexandria, VA. To learn more about this event, go to The Art League.
"The online silent auction of faculty work, the third event in our “30-Something” Summer Series, is only a few days away! We’re thrilled to present such a wonderful collection of works by our generous and talented faculty. Participating in the auction is a fantastic opportunity to own a masterpiece by a member of our talented faculty while supporting The Art League’s build-out at the Madison Annex. All proceeds from the auction go to fund the build-out project."
UPDATE: The auction is over, and was a big success. Many thanks to all who participated!
I entered these three images in the first-ever cellphone photography exhibition, “Phoneography,” at the Photoworks gallery in Glen Echo, MD, and I’m happy to report that all three were accepted.
