Artist of the Month

SUE GOODPASTER

We invite you to visit Gallery 510 Art & Framing to see the new pastel paintings by Sue Goodpaster. Sue is a retired art teacher now painting full-time. Her primary medium was oil paint until she discovered pastels. She has taken workshops now with international artists Albert Handell, Richard McKinley, Nancy King Mertz, and Marla Bagetta.

“Glories In Nature” is the title of Sue’s show. “Due to travel restrictions this year I have become more aware of the beauty in common things that surround me every day. I have painted Queen Anne’s Lace, Thistles, and ripe tomatoes from rural Illinois as well as scenes from past travels. I find that light and color make me want to capture the glory of these simple things in a story I can tell in a pastel painting.”

What’s a deckled edge?

In fine art it’s the feathered edge of the piece of paper the art is produced on. If you have an original watercolor painting with a deckled edge you’ll probably want to let those edges show in the framing of it. Usually the cu tedges of paper are put under a mat. A watercolor with a deckled edge presents a challenge if you want it presented on top of a mat. Only archival mounting tapes should be used. It can be presented directly on the mat or it can be lifted some to give a shadow beneath the edge. The mat it lays on can be the same color as the paper or it can be a contrasting color to bring out a color in the painting.Any time you don’t use a mat, spacers need to be used to separate the art from the glass. Just remember to choose a frame with a deep enough rabbet to accommodate the mount, mat, art, spacer and glass. Gallery 510 can help you with all of this. We are here to help!
