Late Summer’s Generosity (pastel) by Polly Castor

Something about being home all summer, feasting my eyes on garden glory, has made me want to putter around painting flowers. There may be more to come. I’ve intentionally stylized these, more interested in shape and pattern, texture, mark making, and interplay, than in literality.

Late Summer’s Generosity is 22″x22′ and done in pastel. You can see the entire painting above and details of it below.

The original painting is available for purchase here.

Prints and merchandise of this image are available here.

I can hardly believe it is already December!


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.
