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!

Same subject - 2 mediums
I've wanted to do this for awhile.... and today I did! I wanted to show the same subject in a few different media, in order to show what a different presentation they would make. Here is the proof!
The same reference picture ... one done in oil pastels and the other done in watercolor. You can certainly see that they come from the same reference - however - the overall sense of the finished piece is quite different. Interesting! Both the media (and the technique required to use it) and the supports are completely different. Predictably, the finished works look completely different!
