Best of America – Pastel Vol II

Victoria Ryan shadesofredvines.jpgVictoria Ryan

Earlier this year I was invited by Kennedy Publishing Co. to be featured in one of their Best Of America books, specifically Volume II Pastels, which is in the final stages of completion.    I was honored and excited to be chosen to be included in this publication, which consists of both juried entries and invited artists.   The paintings chosen for the book are seen above.   Clearly my strong color contrasts are what impressed the publishers!   The book contents, as well as other offerings from Kennedy Publishing  can be viewed at

    Congratulations. I feel gratified since I commented a while back on the center pastel, Winter Wildflowers. I love the vivid strength of your paintings.

  2. I hope you don’t mind but I got kicked out before I could leave my website.
