Margaret Dyer's Art

When I was in my mid 20's, I made a promise to myself that as soon as I had some extra money in my pocket, I'd buy a pastel painting by Margaret Dyer. It took until I was around 31, but I did it and I bought two. They are the two most prized possessions I have. I love everything Margaret paints. She has been a major influence on the way I see the figure and color.

I wanted to mention Margaret is offering her beautiful pastels on auctions on eBay - what a great opportunity for any of us to collect some of her work. Part of me wants to keep it a secret, so I can be the highest bidder on some of these awesome pieces - but she deserves the best and I wanted to put in a good word for her.

Karin, yes you are right. Thanks for providing the link to this artist. Her work reminds me of the Scottish colorists.

Hello Karin, like you, I promised myself long time ago that I wanted to buy a pastel by Margaret Dyer. Last week, through the generosity of a friend, I was able to acquire a beautiful (stunning, incredible, unbelievable ) small but perfect pastel painting by this artist. This now, too, is my prized possession. Claire Moynihan

Lovely post Karen - I blogged it and referred people to Margaret's website, blog and e-bay store on my weekly round-up post today.
