Pastels are so wonderfully tactile and allow me to draw fine details or lay in large blocks of color. Textured patterns or smooth transitions, there really are no limits to what this medium will allow me to create.

Featured Artist Kate Passingham

I’ve long been captivated by pastels and am enthralled by the immediacy and intensity of their colours and their incredible versatility.

Featured Artist Lynn Goldstein

I am never interested in replicating exactly what I see in front of me. Rather, I want to express the way that being in nature makes me feel.

Featured Artist Bob Palmerton

As an artist, I feel obligated to capture the unique character of a landscape at a given moment in time, and to enhance its key features and the message it conveys with a painting that will always remain the same to be enjoyed by future generations.

Featured Artist Don Borie
