I’m delighted to have been juried into this prestigious “51st Enduring Brilliance” annual pastel show sponsored by the Pastel Society of America. Above see my painting that’s in the show.

In order to apply for this show, one must first be juried into membership.  From those capable (international) members, 174 works were selected for inclusion in this show from 1,463 submissions.

I’ve applied in the past, but this is the first time I’ve been included.  It’s an honor I’m grateful to have achieved, and one I hope to repeat.

You can see my favorites from the show below in this post. To see the whole show online, click here.


























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.

    Love your piece. Interested in “Christina’s world -inside” and the lady on the beach. Both caught my eye. Good life. Thanks for sharing it.
