Bonnell Lindstrom, Pastels

Bonnell paints impressionistic landscapes of Colorado and is drawn to the unending beauty of nature. She moved from Glen Ellyn, IL, to Colorado in 1986, where she worked and raised her children. Bonnell paints in the soft pastel medium and finds the process to be calming and joyful. After careful planning, she appreciates the immediacy of seeing the desired image appear quickly and spontaneously. Bonnell is a member of the Pastel Society of Colorado and the Longmont Art Guild, with an Honorable Mention in the spring show. Most recently, her artwork appeared in the Fort Collins Natural Areas Explorer. Her goals are to continually improve her abilities and allow others to enjoy her work.
