'Golden Rays' - pastel - 12x11.75
Here's a little sneak peek of the finish piece from a demo that I think will be included in the July/August issue of The Pastel Journal. I've been interviewed by Deborah Secor, a great "interpreter" of "art talk" and one with the ability to take that mumble jumble and put it into wonderfully crafted paragraphs. She managed to see what I mean despite 'ME'. The issue features 'Sea and Skies'...and I'm the 'sky guy'. I used to be the 'cardinal guy' in my feathered critter painting days. So 'sky' guy is fine with me as long as I don't have to use all of those reds like I did back then.
The article will feature quite a few pastels with a lot of sky in them, and a demo of which this is the finish. Should be a good read. We had a great conversation and Deborah truly did capture what I meant to say. ;-)
