KAREN SMITTLE'S GALLERY
Though a college trained artist, Karen
Smittle is self-educated in the medium of pastel. Unlike
the impressionistic landscapes and still lifes or the
cherubic children for which pastels are generally known,
Smittle's skyscapes and landscapes are vibrantly colorful
and texturally saturated. Experimenting with many surfaces,
some of her own making, she prefers a canvas specially
manufactured for pastel, which allows layer upon layer of
the medium and a larger format than most pastel surfaces
are capable of supporting.
As framing is very subjective, prices given are for unframed pastels, and do not include shipping. Framing is available, if desired.
