Winter Vineyards, Oil Pastel, by Sally Landis
Hills Member Sally Landis was raised on the beaches of Southern
California, spent many summers backpacking in the High Sierra, and has
lived her adult life exploring Northern California. Currently displayed
in the lobby, Sally's oil pastel sketches of the California landscape
have been made in many of these places that she loves. These small
drawings are often a prelude to her larger paintings.
"I love the immediacy of oil pastel, they are actually like adult crayons. I don't have to worry about fussy tubes of paint, canvases, solvents, brushes, or easels. Just a pad of paper and the oil pastels. These drawings were made on brown Kraft paper, which gives a nice dark background for the vibrant colors of the pastels."
We welcome you to take a moment to stop and admire her works next time you walk through the lobby doors.
