14” x 11”

I have always loved violas and pansies. All pansies are actually violas but not all violas are pansies, something I didn’t learn until recently. This one was growing in the planter outside my studio window and I was drawn to the beautiful shading of blue on the outside to the yellow of its center. I knew when I saw it, that I had to put it up on my easel.


This original one of a kind pastel painting ships mounted on foamcore and wrapped in tracing paper to protect the pastel drawing. It arrives with a pre-cut white mat and self-adhesive spacers to mount on the back of the mat to keep it raised slightly from the painting surface itself, one technique recommended when framing a pastel (instructions are included). The matted painting will fit in a standard 20" x 16" frame to make it easy to frame. (Frame is not provided.)
