PEPPERS, ARTICHOKES AND ONIONS


I took photos today of two or three new paintings that I have been trying to finish up, and when I loaded them on the computer, they all had major glare problems. So,rather than not put up a new post, I am, once again posting one of my older pastels. This one is kind of interesting because I glued a type of hand-made paper all over and then worked the pastel over it. This is the only photo I have, and it is actually a detail which doesn't show the most interesting part of the collage effect. I did this technique two or three times,and they were a great success. I really need to buckle down and do a few more. I hope you enjoy it. If you are interested in purchasing, please e-mail me for details of price and size.

I love looking at your pastels as I am fighting a war with this media at the present. Gives me some incentive to keep at it!

o I love this... the way the artichoke and onion melt into the warm background as if readying to become a soup.... I must be hungry but I do love the colors in this!!!

I love pastels but am useless with them - they are for the future. These are great. I found a blog where R. Garriott gives hints and tips on how to correct your paintings. He's on my blog at the top, but his address is http://rgarriott.blogspot.com/. I think I found him on Sheila's blog.

I love your work! This one is so warm and inviting. I love the way the light hits the sides of the vegetables.

I love contrast, “you give it” with color and light very good

I love seeing the effects you are getting with this process - I hope you will post the entire image when you get a picture. That glare... always a problem!!!
