Two New Abstract Pastels

Two New Abstract Pastels
Abstract Pastel by Polly Castor: From the Treehouse

From the Treehouse (pastel) by Polly Castor

These are two abstract pastels that I have just done. They both have very textured underpaintings that were thrilling to paint on. I plan to explore further textures in my underpaintings in the near future; this was my first foray into doing it, and I found it fascinating.

The one above is 8″ x 8″ and is titled From the Treehouse; prints of it can be obtained here. The one below is 12″x16″ and is titled Brittle Enthusiasm. Prints of that one can be purchased here.

I love both color and texture, and there is more contemplative effort put into these than you might realize!

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.
