I feel it's my job as an artist to confront challenging topics, look difficult emotions in the face, and take risks in my work. I don't take a break from this way of living, it's just a part of who I am now. But I did get myself a bouquet of flowers one Friday after a particularly tough week. And then I painted it.
• Original pastel painting by Mary Pow, 2020
• Size: 11" x 14"
• Orientation: horizontal
• Medium: soft pastel
• Not framed
• Not matted
The painting will arrive unframed, with a cardboard support and wrapped in glassine paper to keep it safe while in transit. I highly recommended having it framed professionally. I'm happy to advise you on framing options, just let me know if you have any questions!
A NOTE ABOUT PASTEL
Unlike most types of painting, pastel is a dry medium. It is pure powdered pigment in the form of a stick, allowing it to have a close association with drawing.
A NOTE ABOUT FRAMING
Pastel paintings need to be framed behind glass and handled with care to prevent damages. Professional framing is best, ideally with museum quality glass.
