"For a moment"

Past Northwest Pastel Society president Darlene Morgensen focuses on scenes from out of the way spots on the Olympic Peninsula, and the Puget Sound, often near her home. Her dramatic sunsets and skilled renderings of cloudy skies put her in a league with the most sensitive of landscape artists. This group of paintings, at Jeffrey Moose Gallery, will provide images of our current drought summer, featuring locations on the Olympic Peninsula as well as Eastern Washington, in farm country near Yakima.

Perhaps the reason for her sensitivity lies in her method: she paints outside, "en plien air", often returning to the studio to finish. Once back in the studio, surrounded by photos of her location, she will often play the same music on her stereo that she listened to while in the field in an attempt to continue the mood.

Her skill has been recognized by institutions and individuals alike. She has taught and demonstrated at the Seattle Art Museum during the recent show of Impressionist paintings and at Daniel Smith, Inc. Her professional affiliations, aside from the Pastel Society, include the Pastel Society of America and the American Artist's Professional League.
