White Chair, a moody composition of a woman relaxing in a cozy chair. This figure painting was created in France while I worked and studied at an artist retreat center, La Bonne Et Toile. I was elated to have a live model for the first time since college. This original painting was created while I was studying with the amazing pastel painter, Margaret Dyer. The beautiful medium of pastel had always fascinated me. During my time in France, I had access to the best and most varied collection of pastels from all over the world. The rich layers of pigments in the pastels from France still astound me.
An original pastel painting, 19x25 inches, natural (and non-toxic) pastels on very thick, archival rough pastel paper. This painting is matted with and deep olive mat in a simple black wood frame with museum glass, non-glare, protective against sunlight and dust. The framed piece measures 29x35 inches.
This piece was built with sumptuous pastel pigments, layer by layer until a glowing, ethereal image emerges — rich and complex absolutely mesmerizing, and radiates classic ambiance that could only have been created in France.
