Watercolor and Pastel Artists at CHAW
The November issue of the Hill Rag, that monthly must-have newspaper avidly read by Capitol Hill residents and others, features a wonderful article about Wednesday Studio member Martha Pope.
The author of the article, art critic Jim Magner, notes that Martha “travels the world looking at and photographing landscapes, and then sequesters herself in her studio where she reaches into the heart of a place—adding, subtracting and finding its core.”
We in the Wednesday Studio are familiar with that approach by Martha—finding the core, the heart of the landscapes she paints. Here are three of Martha’s pastels that were published in the Hill Rag:
Nice summary of a lovely article about Martha. The writer also referred to our teacher and mentor, Ellen Cornett, as an “ American Treasure.”
Yes, that was a momentous article. I didn’t mention the Ellen comment cuz didn’t want to distract from the Martha focus.
