'Beyond the Blue' exhibit opening at Three Pines
Submitted to Harbor Light Newspaper

Louise Pond is a plein air pastel artist from Elk Rapids, who recently won "First in Show," from a pastel group called, The Light Chasers, in Sarasota Florida. Her work was also recently chosen for the Dennos Museum Show, The Art of Sleeping Bear.

In her exhibit, Beyond the Blue, Pond states, " Outside my window and beyond the blue of Lake Michigan, lies my passion as an artist. With a strong need to express myself creatively, I have landed on the process of painting from life with the vibrant medium of soft pastels. I have come to this process later than most, and have no time to waste. There just doesn't seem to be enough time."

My quest is to be fully engaged, putting in the hard work to hone my skills as a plein air artist. I strive to capture the truth of what I see, a moment in time-- a shadow cast on a barn or the calm reflection of the sky resting upon a lake. My hard work is paying off and it is tomorrow's work I am most excited about. I am blessed in having this work, God's love and the support my wonderful family and friends."

The opening reception takes place on July 6 from 2 until 7 p.m.
