This is an original pastel painting (or drawing) titled "Carmel Hideaway". The original is an 12" x 15" on Wallis Professional sanded paper, and matted and framed in a simple, black wood frame. The painting was done from a photo I took in Carmel, California. NuPastel and Rembrant pastels were used for this painting. No fixative was used on the finished painting. The first photo was taken prior to framing (please excuse the glare from the glass in the framed photos).

The off-white mat is 1.5" wide; the outside of the frame measures 17" x 20". The painting is framed using spacer bars between the painting and mat, typical with pastels to prevent bits of pigment from dropping on to the mat.

Pastels are pure pigment held together with a binder hold the pigment together, and have been used by such artists as Mary Cassat and Edward Degas. Original pastels can last centuries, but should be kept out of direct sunlight and handled with care.

I am a member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast; my painting "First Pitch" was selected for the 2011 Pastels USA exhibition and it sold for $1,000.

Please convo me with any questions. Thank you for looking!!!
