Ascending to the Great Heart of Love (pastel) by Polly Castor

While I have a lot of experience doing abstract art, I have not done much in soft pastel, which is a medium I have usually reserved for more representational work. This is a situation I am beginning to remedy with this 18″ x 22″ work on an archival pastel panel, titled Ascending to the Great Heart of Love.  I learned a lot doing this piece and am excited to continue in this vein, although I’ll do several things differently next time. See the entire work above and some details below.

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.
