Like Glass

Like Glass © 2013 Lynn Goldstein , Pastel, Watercolor and Acrylic

This is a new painting that I just completed. It depicts a spot on Heron Pond close to my home. Heron Pond is one of my favorite places to paint on location. A few years ago, on a pristine day, I was on my way to teach. Struck by the beauty of the day, I got out the door early enough to walk around Heron Pond and snapped the inspiration for this painting. I was fascinated with the way that the trees were reflecting into the still water. This painting was made in my studio, but I plan to get out and paint soon!

Big Sky - 9 x 12 inches - Pastel by Lynn Goldstein

I have been extremely remiss in posting to my blog for some time. I think that perhaps I was not sure which direction to take in my work after completing the installation piece, "Treatise." As a result of that concern, I have been wandering about a bit. I have made several paintings and I have explored mixed-media. I felt a bit like a kid at play in kindergarten working in mixed-media and will be doing more of that in the future. In the meantime, I am including a painting in pastel that I have recently completed.

This painting is an example of my more recent work exploring the landscape of Iceland. Iceland is an island of extreme contrasts. One thing remained the same during our visit there, the sky was always interesting and often magnificent. This painting was inspired by that gorgeous sky. The painting is 9 x 12 inches.
