Zoom into the beauty of a single bloom and translate it in pastel. Re-imagine the natural colors and translate them into vivid richness or subtle tones. That's the approach Carolyn Hancock applies in her pastel paintings of flowers of the Gulf Coast.
The Language of Flowers, a beautifully written book by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, inspired Carolyn's video of her flower paintings, creatively set to great sounding music.
Caroline Ratliff will present a workshop on painting Skies and Seas on September 21. The workshop will be at the Galveston Art League, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Price of the workshop is $80. Email Caroline for information.

The Fulshear Art Walk will be held on September 14 from 11am until 6pm. Local artists will be stationed through the "downtown" area along the sidewalks and in front of local businesses. There will also be a children's art show and an interactive "chalk" painting for all ages. Sharon Haney, a pastelist, is one of the featured artists and she will also have a second easel set up for those visitors who would like to try their hand at pastel painting.
Sharon has had two paintings accepted into the National Society of Artists 29th Juried show for the second year in a row. This year the show is hosted by The Brazosport Art League and will be held at 400 College Blvd, Clute, TX 77531. It will be open from September 21 to October 21, 2013.
Congratulations, Linda, on
