The Beauty of Everyday Places | Pastels By Lyn Asselta

Lyn Asselta lives in South Florida, a location that affords wonderful opportunities for the landscape painter, but Asselta proves there’s more to the surroundings for artists than the expected seascape. As feature writer Amy Leibrock puts it, “Asselta builds landscapes that make viewers pause and listen to what a place has to say. A wave of familiarity comes through in the details she includes—details that others might choose to omit: a weed-like cluster of palm trees, an abandoned shed, a chain-link fence or the back of a street sign. Even her depictions of more typical scenes of her South Florida environs—beaches, marshes and coastal countryside—convey an intimate sense of place.”

To read the full story, see “Everyday Places” in the February 2016 issue of Pastel Journal, available in the NorthLightShop, and on newsstands. But first, check out some of the pastel paintings we couldn’t fit into the article:
