Coming Home: The Art of Steven McCarthy

Pastel Resist is a versatile process developed by artist Steven McCarthy. Utilizing principles derived from wax resist, this method uses crayon or oil pastel overlaid acrylic, latex and enamel paints. The paint is then cut with a knife and removed to reveal the color beneath. The Pastel Resist technique marks a new direction for Steven’s work.

Coming Home marks the return of the McCarthy family to Northern Virginia. Steven continues to teach and make Art. He currently teaches at Brambleton Middle School. He wishes to express his gratitude to Lorraine Moffa and Ashburn Public Library for the opportunity to exhibit his work. For more information about Steven’s work, see his website at You can also follow him on
