In 2007, I began blogging. It is exciting to create consistently, sell my work around the world, and meet wonderful friends! I paint, teach, write, am a lover of nature, family and friends. This is where I post my latest studio work with comments about my process, tips about my techniques, and my thoughts on how faith, art, and life converge. Book mark me and visit again soon!
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.
