E S DeSanna – Winter Fire

Winter Fire
Soft pastel on sanded paper
8″ x 10″ (framed dimensions 11″ x 13″)

E S DeSanna paints mostly landscapes en plein air. Pastel is her primary medium, the splendor of the Hudson Valley her sustaining inspiration. Wanderlust has often taken her to Europe, where she has painted in England and across northern and central Italy. Her work represents the beauty of nature, but often acknowledges a human presence with the occasional road, the distant village, or a patchwork of fields. Though she works in soft pastel, she applies her pigment thickly on a coarse ground, giving a painterly effect. The artist has received awards for her work in both pastel and printmaking. Her work is in collections throughout the U.S. and in Europe. She earned a degree in art from SUNY New Paltz, and has studied at School of Visual Arts in NYC, Woodstock School of Art, and Il Chiostro in Tuscany. She has taught pastel workshops for small groups around the Valley and in Italy, and currently offers classes in pastel privately, for the Shokan Art Group, and at the Woodstock School of Art, among other venues.
