Drama on Deer Isle (Pastel) by Polly Castor

After painting 22 small abstract works for my current show at Byrds Books, it was a pleasure to do something different and paint a landscape in pastel. This scene from Deer Isle Maine happened a few years ago and I haven’t forgotten it. I’ve often said I have over a 1000 paintings waiting their turn on my mental back burner; this is one of those that finally got a chance to emerge.

Titled Drama on Deer Isle, this painting in pastel is 18″x12″. You can see the entire painting above, and some details of it below. And you can get prints of it or merchandise with it on it here in my gallery.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
