My Art in Pastels

Artist Statement: "They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I have a love for beauty and aesthetics--in people, nature, the environment, and the world.  This beauty comes from within humankind and is depicted in what we create and who we are.  I like painting in vivid colors--as this is the beauty that I see.  I also like painting a variety of subject matter and experimenting with different techniques, media, and color.  My basic paints are watercolors and soft pastels, but I experiment with many other paints, including acrylics, ink, crayons, colored pencils and more. I like creating art in mixed media. I oftentimes blend in my calligraphy with my art, especially as I create my handcrafted cards and notes. I have been fortunate to have many enlightened, creative, and talented teachers, guides, associates and friends, who have also contributed to my evolution as an artist."   Rosalyn M. King
