Late Day Long View

Another view looking towards the Taconics from Stratton Road. This pastel is 11 x 14 on colourfix paper.

The following comes from a book titled Silent Fire by James A. Connor: It is an art, the root of all art, the contemplative gaze mastered by poets and painters, the contemplative hearing mastered by composers, the contemplative touch, the contemplative smell, the contemplative taste. You can eat the world as painters eat the world, dance with the universe as if it were all music.

I have never really been able to work in pastel. Every other media is comfortable, but I just can't handle pastel. I am so impressed by the obvious ease that you have in this media. Beautiful work, incredible scenes.
