This year the Pastel Society of Southeast Texas will hold its juried show in the beautiful venue:
The Gallery at Round Top
from October 29 through November 26, 2016.
The gallery we were contracted to use (Galerie Spectra) has not been able to renew its lease and is no longer able to host our event. Thank goodness for the quick actions of our two Chairs for this event, Lynda Hughes and Carolina Dalmas, who worked very hard indeed and have come up with a wonderful venue for our show. Someone needs to buy them chocolate!
The Gallery at Round Top is located at 201 East Austin, Round Top, Texas 78954, 979-249-4119. See map location

We all want to “do it right,” to achieve our visions in and for our painting print out these points and put them somewhere near your easel. Reading them from time to time may help to keep all of us on course ........
New Product to play with ..... another excuse to get into the studio apart from the fact that the rain is keeping you indoors!
Below is a link to Diane Townsend's latest product (drum roll here) ..... less dusty pastels!
They are called Figments.
Diane has been in the pastel business for quite some time now (since 1971) and you may have some of her thin lines or terrages in your collection of pastels. These little gems are a bit grittier than most and have the happy knack of being able to deposit more color on a piece you thought was almost saturated with pigment. Take a look at the new offering. You can see what others are saying on Diane's Facebook page too.
