  COVER ART: "Flashy Floats" by Pamela Winkler - 24 x 30    “I enjoy exploring the form and texture of both shiny new and aging objects, often coming in for a close up view. When tackling a shiny subject I select a very velvety finished paper such as Pastelmat. The paper holds several layers of pastels, but allows for a very smooth blended surface.   After retiring from a career as an architect in 2008, I decided to take two years exploring various art forms and media... before falling for pastel painting.  I have been working in pastels since 2010.”     Website: www.pamelawinkler.com   Studio address: Warehouse Studios, 170 Lyman Street, Asheville River Arts District
