March 17 Meeting Features Mary Aslin, Pastel Artist Extraordinaire.

The public is invited to the Fallbrook Art Association meeting Sat., Mar. 17, at 9:30 am at The Fallbrook Women’s Club, 238 W. Mission Road. The meeting will include a critique for members’ paintings, one work each, from 9:30 to 10:15 am, followed by artist Mary Aslin demonstrating a painting in pastels.

Shown below, “Beckoning Spring”

Light gracing any subject and telling a story of beauty is the source of inspiration for Mary Aslin's award-winning still life and figurative paintings, found in collections worldwide. Classical training by renowned artists and painting directly from life have shaped her vision. Her collectors have summarized the experience that many have viewing her art: "Light, so much light...and drama with tranquility."

After Mary’s demonstration, she will conduct a pastels workshop from 1:00 to 4:00 pm . The rich and immediate medium of soft pastel and its ability to capture nuances of light and color quickly and beautifully, will be the focus of Mary Aslin's pastel painting mini workshop.  Working directly from life, students will produce a small pastel painting, grounded in the fundamentals of excellent design and drawing, and utilizing the specific techniques Mary uses to produce her still life paintings. 

The workshop is open to both beginners and advanced painters, members and non-members.  The cost for members is $40 ($35 to the artist, $5 to FAA), and the cost for non-members is $50 ($45 to the artist, $5 to FAA). 

To register, call Carol Reardon at (760) 731-6677. Participants need to register in advance by sending in checks to reserve a spot.  Reardon will then email a list of supplies to bring, and the class agenda.
