As we gear up for summertime travels, I'm looking forward to creating pastel paintings from your memorable vacation photographs. Here are several vacation images captured in a pastel painting.
Grand Teton National Park photo:
'Squall in the Tetons" pastel painting (with a bit of artist's license applied). Private Collection.
Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone photo.
"Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone" pastel painting. A recent collector purchased "Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone" as a gift for her husband, who thought that this iconic view was spectacular (I have to agree)!
Long Lake, Phelps, Wisconsin (a wonderful cabin escape during Thanksgiving 2018) photo:
"Way Up North on Long Lake" pastel painting. Juried into the Huron Art Collective Annual Exhibit and now in a private collection.
Farm in County Mayo, Ireland photo.
"Cuddy Farm" pastel painting. Private collection.
How commissions work:
My process is very simple. You can email me with 1-3 digital photos of a particular scene with a short description of the location and what appeals most to you of that scene. Choose a size, from 9x12, 12x16 or 18x24. These original pastel paintings are priced at $250 (9x12), $400 (12x16) and $600 (18x24) and are sold unframed (ask me about framing options). The unframed paintings are wrapped in glassine and secured for safe shipping anywhere in the United States.
I hope my blog visitors find enticing vacation photos to preserve their memory in a pastel painting. In fact, perhaps your photos will encourage me to expand my travel horizons!
