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.
PWA Participant Artist Allene Steinberg created this beautiful mixed media piece (charcoal and pastels on colored paper) of her cat, Gloria Rose. “My two loves, trees and Gloria Rose…”
