Austin Pastel Society
The Austin Pastel Society is a Non-Profit Organization founded in 1998 by a group of Austin artists who are active in the soft pastel medium.
Our mission is to provide members with opportunities to exhibit their work and to educate the public, gallery owners and collectors about the merits and care of pastel paintings. Artists, from beginners to advanced, benefit from many opportunities provided by the Austin Pastel Society to learn about materials and techniques and to grow in their abilities by observing demonstrations at monthly meetings, participating in hands-on workshops led by nationally recognized instructors and by attending paint-outs and other events.
Members are invited to participate in both juried and open exhibitions of their work at locations throughout the area.
The Austin Pastel Society is a member of the International Association of Pastel Societies (IAPS) and VU/Austin.
The Austin Pastel Society currently has approximately 100 members.

Brushworks by Monte
Welcome to my Blog. I'm a self taught South Florida Landscape artist, working primarily with acrylics ... I also like to experiment with abstract renderings of Still Life, Surrealistic Pop Art Portraits, Nudes & Fiqures. I created this blog to showcase my work and to share my journey as an artist with others. My work is best described as Abstract and Representational where reality and illusion merge into a single element of pure expression. As we grow older we tend to lose the magic of discovery and the joy of creative play. I hope to express the beauty of God's creation with my brush and paints. Surely, the finest teachers of creativity, persistence, and unconditional love, are children. Painting is my way of getting back in touch with that inner child and help with my own personal recovery.
