Thanks for [some of] the memories

PAS_2006_CD_500.jpgThe year is 2006. The top movies featured pirates and penguins, and the former vice president delivering troubling news about our planet. In addition, there were plenty of distressing news stories coming out of Iraq, and the year was, perhaps, a record-setting one for political scandals. Oh, and then there was that scare over tainted spinach.

But 2006 was a good year for pastel and for The Pastel Journal. That’s why we’ve put together a CD of all those fine memories from 2006—more than 500 pages of art and articles, all on a single disk. So you don’t have to worry about where you laid down that copy of December 2006, because it’s right here along with all the other issues, just waiting to be rediscovered in a digital format.

Here’s just a few of the highlights:
• The results of the 7th Annual Pastel 100 competition
• Alan Flattmann on the use of fixative and spray paint for
special effects
• Richard McKinley’s recipes for homemade grounds
• Wolf
Kahn’s pastel prints
• A visual tour of the best
pastel collections in the U.S.
• Sneak peeks into small but
efficient studio spaces
• And dozens of inspiring artist’s stories, including features on Paula Rego, Janet Fish, Ellen Eagle, Peter
Seltzer, Susan Ogilvie, Clark Mitchell, Jane Lund, Terri Ford, Judith Carducci, Al Lachman, and many others!
