The Colorist is a newsletter format artist's blog featuring fine art, the artist blogging community, my own art, art history, and ideas about art.  You may enjoy reading art essays, see what contemporary artists are doing, and explore my pastel landscapes in the New School Color style.  I am Casey Klahn, an artist from Washington state.  My profile can be found here


Casey Klahn is an American artist who shows you new colors. Looking at his works, what at first seems a mystery eventually gives way to an emotional renewal. He has said, “I want my pictures to feel for you like nine months of rain, but with hope for tomorrow.”

Casey Klahn was born in 1958 in Aberdeen, Washington and raised in Hoquiam, Washington.

He continues the expression of ideas that began over a century ago with Modernist painters such as Cézanne, van Gogh, Degas and Matisse, and yet his color designs are evocative and new. Casey is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America.
