Beneath Jupiter

Beneath Jupiter by Karen Gadient, 2015

Beneath Jupiter. Pastel on charcoal paper.

Created in the delightful company of wine and cats. Yes, I realize now that I should have made something Pluto-esque, but hey… oops. I blame the wine.

My parents (both artists) enjoyed using pastels, and I remember getting into their fine pastels more than once as a kid―and pretty much ruining them. They never got too angry about it, since at least I was showing an interest in art.

I find pastels to be a challenging medium to control, but I can’t resist all those bright colors tempting me to try them, just like all those years ago.
