Artist have long used pastels for drawing since prehistoric times,made popular through the Renaissance Era and continuing into present day and a hit with street artists. Pastel hues are in a groove this Spring/ Summer 2012, conjuring up memories of our infancy, being swaddled in blankets and rompers. These cotton candy colors of mint, lemon yellows, pale pinks, and robin's egg blues have made their way to hair color, makeup, and wardrobe. Poised for daintiness, pastels are packing a punch this season. If these colors can't awaken one from the winter doldrums, I don't know what will.
