Dot Stepenaski

'Rocky Times', a pastel by Dot Stepenaski

Don't miss this exhibit of Dot's recent pastel paintings. Pastel is a difficult medium, but her style is direct and expressive. Dot's show features local landscapes of Lancaster County with a strong use of color. Her paintings of trees focus on expressive character, color and form. Dot teaches pastel at the LCAA and encourages her students to go beyond copying to give their paintings more depth and meaning.
