The Pastel Journal magazine is having a new challenge for the soft pastel artists. This time the task is to use fruits and vegetables to explore the subject of color and design. You have to submit a pastel painting where you can show an unconventional approach to your portrayal of these classic still life subjects. The deadline is February 12th. The challenge is presented through the art of pastelist Maceo Mitchell and his painting of 42 pears.
