The Texas Pastel Society's motto is "Shared Ideas = Inspiration".  Our new blog will help us stay inspired by sharing our art news with other members and all who visit us.  You will find the latest society news in its pages and you will be able to link to members.

We had many inspiring moments during the year, many great demos like how to paint clouds by Peggy Thompson, Jeannette Cuevas showed us how to do a watercolor underpainting, Master Pastelist Alan Flattmann from New Orleans uses fixative on his works, a framing demo by Laura Everett, Terry Smith's(PSA) use of an oil wash under her pastels, an academic drawing demo by Irene Taylor, a computer demo on how to work with digital images by Susan Tracy and a colorful landscape demo by Jodie Taylor. We even had a Night at the Movies with a Richard McKinley DVD.
Here are a few pics of our wonderful demos.  Enjoy~

We will continue with our Year in Review with the next blog which will cover the Alan Flattmann Workshop and the National Juried Show.  Links to some of our members are provided on this page.  For a complete list of artists and their websites, go to www.texaspastelsociety.com .
