Marcia Holmes, “Garden Fascination,” pastel and oil, 40 x 30 in., $5200, available through the artist

Marcia Holmes IAPS EP/MC PSA-MP: Marcia, a committed Pastelist, is drawn to garden venues as a consummate traveler. With a painterly approach, in Garden Fascination, she’s embracing a balance of oil and pastel, highlighting the texture of peony blossoms with a palette knife on a field of lush pastel. This day was a glorious afternoon stroll in Nedra Matteucci Galleries garden in Santa Fe. Shady Lakes Water Lilies II (Albuquerque, NM) and Safely in the Rabbit Hole (NYC-Central Park) display her noted abstract expressionist mark marking at Master level Exhibitions: Pastel Society of America and IAPS 7th Master Division (through June 21, 2022).
