Red Lion Amaryllis

My pastel "Red Lion Amaryllis" is now being exhibited at the Pittsboro Public Library's Chatham Artist's Guild Show to entice people to come visit me during the Tour.

This pastel was painted from an amaryllis blooming next to my window, backlit through a nice gauzy glow behind them. I rarely paint flowers, but this spoke to me.  I nurtured it for months and grew attached to these lovely blooms!

Save the dates!  I'm #24 and open the first weekend of the Chatham Artist's Guild Tour....December 6 &7, from 10am - 5pm in Fearrington Village.

Check out our website for the tour for more info a map and directions here:

Hope to see you there!

New Swan painting

Finished the other swan painting I wanted to do from that same day at Apex Park, NC.  This one is a lone swan....looking so elegant.  Thus the title "Elegance", 12"x19", pastel ©KimWerfel.

Painted on the other half of the Salmon Sennelier La Carte pastel paper using many of the same pastels as the previous "Swans" painting.  Hoping to have them both framed and ready for the Chatham Artists Studio Tour that I'm in on Saturday & Sunday, this December 6th & 7th from 10am-5pm.
