Linda Post: Pastels

The pastel paintings, produced over the last twenty-five years, comprise Post’s largest body of work to date. She says, ‘Working with soft pastel sticks is a natural extension of my fingers into the realm of pure pigment. I am much more enamored of the sticks as they wear down to tiny stubs of color, working together with my hands in a rhythm of sweeping, smearing and staccato motions.
