about the experience,
From our new found
On September 1, 2010, I was inducted in Paris as the American Ambassador of the Société des Pastellistes de France. This is the oldest Pastel Society in the world. Founded in 1885 when artists like Degas, Puvis de Chavannes, Besnard, Levy, Helleu Gerveix, Chenet, and Mary Cassatt were involved in the revival of the Art of Pastel.

D.K. Richardson interprets with me, our travels in France with paintings, photographs and videos.
Summer 2010 we exhibited our pastel works in...more...
This is our friend Mike. He accompanied his wife Mary Beth Martin to our trip to France and had to put up with us when we wanted our pictures taken. Here you can see him holding three cameras and his own hanging on his shoulder. I don't know how many more he had in his bag.
He's my icon for this exhibit since I decided to show mostly photographs and videos I took during my trip.
He doesn't know it yet, but for this painting, I brought Mike to pose for me in front of the Eiffel Tower, with his shiny boots, his cowboy hat, and his colorful Texas flag inspired tie...I designed it myself.
Thank you Mike!
