In 2007, I began blogging. It's been exciting to create consistently, sell my work around the world, and meet wonderful friends! I paint, teach, write, am a lover of nature, family & friends. You can view 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!
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!
