One of the most exciting moments in the editorial process that begins with recruiting the talented pastel artists you see featured in our pages and ends with the magazine arriving at your doorstep, is choosing which painting will appear on our cover. There are many variables involved—orientation, composition and color, to name only a few—but our primary aim is to select a painting that will convey the tone and timbre of the work happening in pastel today, while also drawing the eye of potential readers at the newsstand. Care to lend us a hand with our selection for our June 2009 issue? We’d love to hear what you think. Cast your vote for the best The Pastel Journal cover by clicking here or on the covers above.
