I am very honored to have my painting “HOT” included in the Pastel Society of America’s 44th annual “Enduring Brilliance” show in New York City. The show opened on September 6, 2016 and will run though October 1 2016, at the National Arts Club. It is a very humbling experience to be a part of this show with so many fine artists.
There were 1500 submissions and 175 works were accepted, a real privilege to be included!
This show exhibits the breadth and depth of the pastel medium. Brilliant hues and tonalist pallets are possibilities with pastels.
The painting I am exhibiting, “HOT”, is of a house that is not too far from my home. It is an old building that houses apartments. This old house has become a muse. I have painted several paintings in oil and pastel, large and small, with and without figures. I have more paintings planned!
The model in the doorway of this painting is a young woman who had modeled for me many times. When we did this photo shoot, she had a vintage clothing shop and she came with several costume changes. The salmon colored satin gown was a perfect fit for a “hot” afternoon shaded by the doorway.
I hope you enjoy the painting!
