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!

Discovering Reflected Color

When asked to identify the color of a shadow, it is common to respond that it would be a darker color of whatever is in shadow.  A shadow of a tree on green grass would be a darker green.  A shadow of the same tree on dirt would be a darker brown.

Garden of Colour and Flight

On two sides looking out the windows is the woods, the view begins not four foot off the sidewalls where trees and open forest floor slope up and gently away. When the spring rain comes, water gathers in the high places and forms water falling streams that run toward and alongside the studio heading toward gathering ponds on the lower side.
