Tracy Haines Original fine art Colorful Colorado landscapes oil pastel acrylic impressionism expressionism wall art canvas for sale affordable

The juxtaposition of warm against cool was fun to do.  This small piece is called Warm Winter Eve.  I love painting winter scenes but hear that people don't like to buy them because they make them feel " cold".  Who knows. This one should help them feel warm.  Either way,  an artist's job, at least as I see it, is to convey the beauty in life on canvas.  One hopes it speaks to someone else and brings joy and happiness.  This piece also happens to be  a pastel. ( 2 marks against it, poor thing.)  (Some art collectors worry that pastel is not as long lasting as oil or acrylic. This is not true. Pastel is pure pigment bound up and held together by a substance such as gum tragacanth.  It is the same pigment used in other media such as oil. It is every bit as long lasting.)   Pastel must be framed behind glass though, or it will smear.  An excellent museum glass is essentially invisible.  I like to frame larger pastel pieces without a matt and with good glass.
