"White Madonna in Aix-en-Provence"

(detail view)


"White Madonna in Aix-en-Provence", 36" x 24", pastel on Wallis paper

I'm still awaiting restoration of some of my retouching and scanning software that is important to file size and color for posting, so please bear with me on my posts temporarily, but except for some final touches, I'm pleased to present my latest pastel! I'm also adding something special to one of the portraits you've seen in progress, and will be posting on that as soon as it's far enough along to show you.

Beautiful, Mona. Glad you're (except for a few software glitches) back in action! Love the warm light, and range of whites here.

I didn't know you had two blogs Mona and I never knew you worked in pastels - this piece is STUNNING - totally love it - you are so talented!!!!

Mona said...

Thanks so much Karen! It's actually three blogs, but I haven't had a chance to get back to Eye Portraits in Miniature since the Fall. I hope to return to it too, once I get caught up on some of my large works.

Mona, this is fabulous. You really gave this statue life. I love the subtle oranges in the upper torso and faces.

Mona said...

Thanks Vern!
