Global Warming 2022 (New Conceptualist Painting in Pastel)
Global Warming 2022 painting Global Warming 2022 (pastel) by Polly Castor

I painted this last fall, but then unexpectedly went to Guadeloupe, so never got it posted.

Mostly oblivious, the heat continues to descend, the weather gets weirder, and there’s a darkness lurking in consciousness. (For example, January here in Connecticut has had balmy temperatures in the 60’s– definitely not “normal,” or maybe it is the new normal.)

The painting is 22″x30″ and done in pastel. You can see the entire work above and 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.
