Just back from NYC and retrieved my pastel, "Autumn Tree" which won the Allied Arts Award from the Pastel Society of America which gave me the third national award I needed to be designated Master Pastelist.
While in NY, visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art where I always enjoy seeing the French Impressionists. There is something so thrilling about going up as close as possible and seeing the layers of thick paint and colors that create the play of light.


  1. Aline...a wonderful image, so nicely rendered. Reminds me of a favorite old fall scene by Lester Stevens. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. Thank you Larry...and thanks for following my blog! It's my way of joining the technological age!
