Joe Plaskett is "my favourite" pastel painter and the one that has inspired me to try the medium.
Thanks, Dan!! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Oh my gosh that is beautiful. What an ideal to strive for. Sigh.

"Nan danadh mo lmh mar a dh'iarradh mo shil!"

If my hand could do as my eye would desire!

I've never heard of Joe Plaskett -- what would I do without you people?

Anyhow, Barry, I found some links to some of Joe's stuff and WOW is all I can say:

<A HREF="http://www.galleries.bc.ca/agso/plaskett.html">Joseph Plaskett, Reflections & Shadows</A> BC Gallery
<A HREF="http://www.gallery78.com/jplask.htm">Gallery 78</A>
<A HREF="http://www.ucanbuyart.com/josephplaskett.html">Joseph Plaskett</A>

I'm sure some of the stuff are duplicates, but there might be some variety between those three links.

Me, I'm going to look at them all right now :P

I love your still life, DFGray. It's so vibrant and colourful. I especially like the red on the table played off against the cooler colours.

I had not heard of Joe Plaskett. (Thanks for the links, Roan.) His work is sensational. I see that many of them are huge, done on many pieces of paper. Does anyone know how he frames such work?

best wishes
sandra

Gee, Sandra, I was JUST going to ask that very thing!

It seems like a wonderful way to do extremely large works in pastel.

Roan - Thanks for the links. Very interesting stuff. The guy must go through a lot of pastels.

Dan - your piece is beautiful. What is the size? You mentioned the Senellier shop in Paris. I was there last year - it's like visiting Mecca.

Hi Barry; the piece is a 18X24" much more modest than Joes I was painting the booksellers along the Seine looking at Notre Dame in background found a location with a bench and started to work when a bus stopped and disgorged a crowd which happened over and over again as I was at a bus stop.... when I was done I turned aroud and there was the Sennieler shop an accidental find! but I find lots of adventures when working on location,I once started a fist fight with a pleine air piece.... regards Dan

The last show of his multiple piece works were mounted(pinned) on walls unframed....seemed to be fragile as they took up whole walls and you had to step back to view but really impressive work regards Dan

I just found this link, Pastels ( dont know how I missed it ),and there it was " Homage to Joe ".
My heart lept, " Surely not, I thought, not after only 5 days at wetcanvas "
The topic couldnt load quick enough, but my hopes were soon dashed, it wasnt me you were talking about, ah well! Maybe sometime soon!
Joe lol
