Artist of the Month: Lynn Krause, Pastels

October Woods by Lynn Krause

October Woods by Lynn Krause

Chicago area artist Lynn Krause has been exhibiting her fine pastel drawings at the nation’s art fairs since l967. I’ve known Lynn since the early l980’s and have always been a fan of her work and have always anticipated the next evolution of her work.

Her recent work is pastel. Pastel is an art medium in the form of a stick, consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder. Pastel combines the convenience of a dry medium with the brilliant colour of paint. It is the brilliance of the color which draws artists and patrons to this medium.

The trees which are a feature of her present work glow with the vitality of Fall in America, taking you to the woods of yesterday and today.

If you are in the Chicago area you may meet Lynn September 20 and 21 in Naperville; on September 27 & 28 in Barrington.
