Adrian Giuliani was introduced to soft pastels by Flora Giffuni, the founder of the Pastel Society of America. She had the great fortune of studying with Flora during her teenage years. She loved the immediacy, flexibility and rich, vibrant colors pastels provided. Pastels became her medium.

Like every summer, our GET DUSTY is a free choice competition. It runs until August, 25th at 00:00C ET. Every member can upload 3 paintings!

Please remember the rules before you upload:

1. Your photo has to be 800px on the long side; smaller sizes will be disqualified.

2. Please state the size of your original painting (size without mat and frame).

3. Please state your source! If you do not use your own set-up, you must have the right to use the reference and tell the name of the photographer! We do not want any copyright issues! 

If your entry was done from life, imagination or your own reference photo, say so. If an external reference was used you should state its source and, where appropriate, the name of the person to whom it belongs. If you do not add this information when entering, or later in the comments box, your entry will be disqualified.

Happy Summer painting!
