Pastel Paintings

Drawing in pastel is a new passion of mine. I still have much to learn but I'm excited about the possibilities.  The first time I picked up a Unison soft pastel and used it I was hooked on pastels. Thank You Unison your pastels are exquisite.  

I also don't hesitate to use pencil and charcoal with my pastel drawings. Someone once asked me why I do this. Well, because I can, because I'm curious about how this can create mood and atmosphere, and because any new medium needs to be discovered in terms of limitations and possibilities. 


Sacred Ground

Gathering of words copyright Sue Priest

In a world where there are endless miles of pavement. In a world where what we see is the fear on everyone’s faces. How can I find peace in all this discontent?

High on a desert plateau where sky meets land. I place my trust here on this sacred ground. Where sky meets land I’m standing on sacred ground.

Since the beginning of time the world has been changing. But there are times when it seems like I must choose between man and nature. I say how can I find peace in all this doubt?

High on a desert plateau where sky meets land. I place my trust here on this sacred ground. Where sky meets land I’m standing on sacred ground.

A community and great spirit all of it, that’s one. Where the land gives strength to the soul. Where rhythm space and time all move to the same motion.

High on a desert plateau where sky meets land. I place my trust here on this sacred ground. Where sky meets land I’m standing on sacred ground. 

I’ll find peace where I can.

I’ll find peace where I can.

Hmm. The earth beneath my feet. I’m standing on sacred ground. Where sky meets land right here is sacred ground
