Under a Tree on Umpawaug (pastel) by Polly Castor

This is one of the new paintings in my solo show.

Umpawaug is a beautiful, quiet road in Connecticut that I enjoy walking along. This painting captures one of those moments, simultaneously full of vibrating color and exceptional calm.

The original is available here (to be delivered when the show is over after Easter), and prints and merchandise with it on it are available here.

The complete painting is shown above and details of it are 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.
