Pastels Survive 2012 Superstorm Sandy

We received this amazing customer comment regarding our pastels…….

‘I just opened a box of your pastels that was immersed in sea water and roughed up by Hurricane Sandy. I’d given them up as lost but finally open the box. Although some are a bit lumpy they are still great to work with. You’ll say I should know they can with stand a soaking but still I thought I’d let you know. I wish I could attach a photo of the box and pastels but can’t in this message. So thanks for a great product…..’

Lea had been saving the pastels for a worthy pastel painting. Superstorm Sandy hit the east coast of the US in 2012. The box of pastels had been on the studio shelf since then. Lea didn’t have the heart to open the box until yesterday.

We had no idea our pastels could survive a Superstorm!

Happy Accidents?

Several years ago, 2012 to be precise, my pastel painting took a side road off the path I had been following for a long time.

Portraiture and Unison Colour Soft Pastels

My travels developed in me a love for the Human face in all its myriad colour and contours. People all over the world share a common humanity we seem to have forgotten. Merriment in a child’s eyes are the same in Iraq as Panama.

Locked Down and Dirty

One of the good things about lockdown this year has been reducing the commute between me and my Unison pastels.
