August 27th Gala Raffle Prizes
Special Live Auction Items:
Diane Leifheit Commissioned Painting
Your favorite place made plein air, painted out doors, and finished in studio. One of a kind painting in pastel.
What is pastel you ask?
Pastel is pure pigment, the same as in oils and watercolor. The pigment is initially wet then formed into a dry stick of color. Dianes work is protected by Museum Glass that has no glare. It cannot be seen! Pastel will keep its brilliance for many, many years. The longevity of pastel can be seen in the work of Degas famous for his ballet dancers and figures. His work retains the same brilliance as when they were made over 100 years ago.
Enlist Diane’s point of view to capture your favorite place and enjoy it as part of your home and memories for all seasons - a window to your favorite spot.
The goal is to benefit Pendragon and support the artist at the same time.
Reserve price is $500. Every dollar over $500 goes to Pendragon. Make this wonderful opportunity count for the creative community of Saranac Lake and beyond.
Diane starts her work with a preliminary drawing on the spot and reference photos. You will have a say in the final location and view - this is a unique opportunity to collaborate in the creation of an art work with your view in mind. This piece will be an heirloom you will be proud to pass on.
