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!
Another small landscape study. These have been very helpful to me this summer to develop my language of landscape work and to increase the fluency of that language. Oil pastels are similar - but with many different properties - to painting with oils. Colors blend. Colors compare. And yet, I have found how very differently an oil painting comes across than a pastel. However - the value in doing these smaller studies is still there!
