I just received word that my painting, “Promise,” was accepted into the Pastel Society of America’s annual exhibition in New York City in September. This makes my third painting to have been juried into this prestigious show, and thus I have earned my signature status, which is a huge thing for this pastel artist and teacher!
The painting depicts one of our students, Rylie, painting her dog, Mac. Rylie was 11 at the time, and worked on her pastel painting for three lessons before taking it home to complete. Her dad took a few photos, and the result is this keepsake painting.
