Landscapes: Pastel Paintings by Sara Lowell Swanson

February 3, 2015 through March 12, 2015 -- Malletts Creek Branch: Exhibits

Inspired by landscapes of woods and water, these impressionistic pastels are built layer upon layer, with an under painting of watercolor followed by multiple applications of oil pastels.

The work is unpredictable and challenging, and conveys the light, complexity and colors of a brief moment in the natural world.

A Saline artist, Sara Lowell Swanson often paints a series of pastels from local parks and countryside and finds these landscapes a source of changing beauty and inspiration.
