First impressions of a scene, life in real time, are what MA artist LISA REGOPOULOS likes to paint. That’s why plein air painting excites her most. Her plein air work is fresh and energetic, and it’s that feeling in her pastel work that engages her viewers, causing them to linger and begging them to share in that feeling. She also enjoys working in multiple series and has a focus right now on snowy owls in the landscape, plein air landscape, songbirds and florals.
Her latest accomplishments: Received her IAPS (International Association of Pastel Societies) Master Circle Medallion, IAPS Convention 2022 (earned in 2019 and delayed because of the pandemic), in Albuquerque, NM, Honorable Mention in the Pastel 100 Competition of the Pastel Journal, Best in Show, Pastel Society of NH Members Show, Published in the fall issue of the Pastel Journal Magazine, 2022, 3rd Place in the Pastel Society of New Hampshire National Juried Show, It’s Pastel, and teaching a ten day plein air Painting and Barging in France workshop, September, 2022. Her most recent achievement is a feature article in the summer 2023 issue of the Pastel Journal Magazine.
