How will your artwork age? Pastel paper can rip, curve so that it no longer lies flat, or develop waves from humidity. All that time spent working on your masterpiece, and now it doesn’t look as good. French Canvas to the rescue!
Introducing True Grit Pastel Panels by French Canvas, ideal surfaces for pastel artists. We take pastel paper and adhere it to a dense gatorboard panel. Panels are much more durable than just paper. You can easily wash off pastel from the panel and start again. Available in 18 different sizes and in 5 different grits. Can also be custom ordered to any size you want. Surface holds multiple layers of pastel with ease. Accepts watercolor, acrylic and alcohol/underpainting well. Pastel colors blend comfortably on surface.

Sandy Lindblad, a Grass Valley contemporary animal portrait artist, has a unique style between impressionism/expressionism. Her creative art specializing in animals was born. She now creates with passion, animals in a colorful, expressionistic manner, catching the feeling of cats, dogs, horses and other subjects in her paintings. Using pastels and acrylics, Sandy enjoys seeing them come alive on canvas or board. Lindblad tries to help support various animal rescues when possible through her art donations and demonstrations.

After a 20 year career owning a commercial interior plant company in the East Bay, raising two wonderful sons, and a new marriage, I was able to look at life in a fresh way….one that included things I had always wanted to explore. I picked up a paint brush at a silent women’s retreat through our church in 2004. It was like a whole new world opening before me! Totally hooked from day one. I began classes at the local junior college, took private lessons, all in oil painting. A couple of years ago I was at our local association meeting, and a pastelist demonstrated her work. I loved it! I have sold a few paintings and won a few awards, but even though that is a wonderful side benefit, the true value is the self-satisfaction gained through the creative process. I look forward to joining this art society and meeting my fellow members.
I grew up in the bay area and moved to Portland and Bend Oregon for 25 years. My career was a Human Resources director and I have dabbled in art since college. I discovered the perfect medium (pastels) for me about 10 years ago. I’ve shown my work in several galleries in Oregon and hope to show in the Sacramento and surrounding area. I’m looking forward to being an active member of the Sierra pastel group of artists.
I wanted to let you and everyone else in the Sierra Pastel Society know what has been going on with Wallis Paper. We’re still trying to find a manufacturing site that will meet our standards for quality and is able to use all archival materials. The facility we had been using for the last several years had slowly been deteriorating in the quality of the material it produced for us, resulting in larger and larger portions of each run that we had to throw away. It was adding more and more to the expense of providing Wallis paper to artists and was going to result in significant price increases if we continued production there. Since we stopped manufacturing Wallis paper there, another company has started using them to produce sanded paper for pastelists, but we expect they will face the same problems we walked away from.
You can send an email to Kitty.Wallis@gmail.com and have us call you back for a credit card number or just call it in to503-244-4724. I don’t recommend sending any credit card numbers through email. Sending the order information via email is good, though, since it cuts down on the possibility of errors when we ship it.
