Visual Art is a beautiful language using the elements of art. It is universally spoken and invites the view into the artists world. A painter and art instructor for many years, I also enjoy writing, nature, family and friends. Take a peek into my studio; see what is on the easel, read my thoughts and tips, explore how faith, art, and life converge. The world of art is fun, challenging, exhausting and renewing all at the same time!
Here is a new small study... much like I've been doing this summer. These small oil pastels are my way of doing some small studies in color and value before beginning a larger landscape. It is here that I am working out my ideas and finding what seems to work in the total composition. This one, too, evokes the mid-western area - farms that are tucked away and almost obscured in our scurry to develop the land commercially.
