"A LINE IN THE SAND" 5" X 7" Pastel on Pastelbord
Margaret Dyer is an artist I admire greatly. The beauty she portrays in the human figure is breathtaking. And, I love the scenes in which she places her figures - people doing ordinary, everyday things such as eating at a restaurant, taking dancing lessons, shopping in an open air market, hugging a grandchild, bathing...it's always something that causes that instant reaction inside of us to something familiar and pleasant. Margaret likes to work a lot of her pastel pieces on a Pastelbord surface. I wanted to try that for myself, and I loved it! It accepts a lot of pastel and is easy to clean if the need arises. The little girl above is done on Pastelbord.
