Still 1 (pastel, 16×23) by Paul Murray
In the April 2010 issue of The Pastel Journal, artist Paul Murray reveals that risk-taking factored significantly into his jurying of the Landscape & Interior category of our 11th Annual Pastel 100 Competition. “Those works that seemed to go beyond themselves resonated with me,” he says. For the next Creative Spark challenge, show us a pastel painting in which you took a leap that paid off, and briefly describe how it worked. E-mail your image(s) as JPGs with a resolution of 72 dpi to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 9, 2010. Include the title, dimensions and a brief description. Please type “Creative Spark” in the subject line and include your name, e-mail and mailing address. The “editors’ choice” will be published in an upcoming issue of the magazine. You can view previous challenges at www.artistsnetwork.com/article/creative-spark.
