Pastel on paper

Sailing, or Sailboats in a Harbor, pastel on paper attached to a board, by artist Jonas Lie (1880-1940)

Titled Sailing, or Sailboats in a Harbor, this is a pastel on paper attached to a board by artist Jonas Lie, who lived from 1880 to 1940. I love using pastel. You can do a lot with the medium, as evidenced in this beautiful work by Mr. Lie. I encourage anyone to give pastels a try. I prefer the “wet” ones with oil rather than the dry.

St Patrick’s Day Inspiration

PWA participant artist Tim Bridge loves using lots of different colors: pinks, blues, yellows, greens.

“Since St Patrick’s day is on Thursday, that is the look I was going for,” said Tim of his latest creation. One person described Tim’s work as reminding them of “the promise of spring.”

Tim is a regular at Path with Art’s Open Studio on Mondays from 3:30-5:00pm, which is currently held virtually. “We are one big happy family when it comes to art on zoom,” says Tim. “We are all artists in our own special way.”
