Springtime Blues (pastel) by Polly Castor

Welcome to spring!

This March, with “social distancing,” and with everything but work cancelled and closed, I’ve hiked a lot at Huntington State Park. It has been my only time each day out of the house or office. I wanted to capture both the beauty of the early spring scenes I’ve been taking in, as well as the general melancholy of the time.

So here is my new painting, Springtime Blues, large at 18″x24,” and done in pastel. You can purchase the original here, or alternatively, get prints or merchandise of it here.

See the entire painting above and close up details of it 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.
