First Light Complementary Aspen Passages
A few months ago, you were putting the final touches on your finest
work in pastel and sending the results with absolute care to the pastel
competition of your choice. Then came the waiting. And then more
waiting. And then a little more. And now that you’ve finally learned to
relax and put it all out of your mind, the results are finally coming
The Pastel Society of Colorado
has announced the winners of its annual open Mile High National show.
The event was held this year in Aspen, Colorado, where juror Bob Rohm
of Texas selected 80 paintings out of 250 entries from 12 states. The
Best of Show prize was awarded to Last Light by Roger Ambrosier; the First Place painting in the Traditional category was Carol Rothrock’s Complementary Aspen; and the First Place winner in the Abstract category was Passages

Colorado has over 200 members around the state and across the Rocky
Mountains. PSC is a member of the International Association of Pastel Societies.
