They're all so beautiful and each have a different mood! Wow! I didn't realize pastels could look like that. You are very talented!

Thank you, Katherine.

All very beautiful, Casey. Love the bright splashes of color that are sort of your signature style.

Casey Klahn said...

Thanks, Sonya.

Both pictures are superb and I love seeing them on the board against all those wonderful pastels! It makes me want to reach out and color!

Casey Klahn said...

Hi, Dan! The pastel stick calling to you, too?

Glad to see you and I miss the gang from Katharine A. Cartwright's.

I not only love your use of color but find your designs are fabulous too.

Sara Mathewson said...

these are wonderful Casey. I hope you are feeling better.

I can't wait for you post about the Roche pastels. i spent a whole afternoon drooling over possibilities at Rochester and I am mistaken they do have the half stick sets except not the one you have. love the splashes of color in both of these paintings. Such nice complimentaries and split complimentaries! yummy!

Julie, Sara and Donna - thank you.

Ghost Riders. Fantastic stuff. Downright gaudy, or Gaudi, or something. Bold in pastels. Is that even possible? Apparently.

Casey Klahn said...

Thanks, Gregory! Pastels are powerful loud, which is the opposite of their reputation. Ironic?

These are lucious, Casey! Are you loving the new pastels?

Casey Klahn said...

Thanks, Takecye! Yes, but I had to "get over" the newness.
