A Glade to the Side of Stonington Beach (pastel) by Polly Castor

Thinking forward to future gorgeous sights on our upcoming trip out west, I primed the pump by painting in the studio this favorite spot in Maine from a photograph. This work is larger than most of what I will do on the trip, measuring about 11″ x 14″, and is done in soft pastel.

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.

    Just looked at all your artwork done on the trip. Very impressive the amount you accomplished plein air and then from photos too, you have plenty to work from! You have a great color sense–very Californian. Check out Ron Elstad on FB. He posts many artists who see as you do–he does as well. And what about Laura? Did she let you take any pics of what she did? The rose she drew at my house was impressive, I thought!!
