Mr. Putter sets out to write “The Mystery of Lighthouse Cove” in the book
Mr. Putter and Tabby Write the Book by Cynthia Rylant.
He had everything a writer would need;
a soft chair, a warm fire, plenty of paper and a good cat.
And he did what writers do: ate a lot, and took many naps.
Maybe I need more naps.
Did I mention he had a good cat?
He discovered that writing a book was much more challenging than it might at first appear. But he didn’t give up! He changed directions and wrote “Good Things,” an enchanting list of his favorite things instead.
Inspired, I decided to simply share a list of artists who have used pastel.From the 16th to the 18th Century Leonardo da Vinci Bernardino Luini Jean Clouet Pierre Biard Daniel Dumonstier Jacopo Bassano Federico Barocci Sebastiano Mazzoni Charles Le Brun Joseph Vivien Antoine Coypel Francois Boucher Francois Lemoine Rosalba Carriera Francois Boucher Jean-Baptiste Perronneau Maurice Quentin de la Tour Gustav Lundberg Alexis III Loir Joseph Boz Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin Adelaide Labille-Guiard Theresa Concordia Mengs Jean-Etienne Liotard Sir Thomas Lawrence John Russell Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun Pierre-Paul Prud’hon 19th Century Eugene Delacroix Edouard Manet Edgar Degas Jean-Francois Millet Eugene Boudin Camille Pissarro Claude Monet James McNeill Whistler Berthe Morisot Mary Cassatt Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec Edvard Munch Paul Gauguin Auguste Renoir Pablo Picasso Odilon Redon Fernand Khnopff Lucien Levy-Dhurmer William Degouve de Nuncques Giovanni Segantini Paul Serusier Edouard Vuillard 20th Century Pablo Picasso Ernst Ludwig Kirchner Frank Kupka Arthur Dove Joan Miro Paul Klee Jean Fautrier Henri Michaux Andre Masson Jackson Pollock Arshile Gorky Willem de Kooning Roberto Matta Echaurren Wifredo Lam Jean Atlan Jean-Paul Riopelle Shusaku Arakawa Patrick Naggar Peter Stampfli Gerard titus-Carmel Pierre Skira Francois Barbatre Sam Szafran
