I no longer post to my blog, but it contains several years worth of short articles I've written regarding various painting tips, thoughts, and inspiration for pastelists and oil painters. I began the blog in 2011 simply as a resource for students I taught at my studio at the time. I stopped posting in 2018, but even though I've grown in my artistic journey since then, much of what I've shared here is still relevant, and therefore I've kept it visible for anyone who cares to skim though it.

Spring is in the Air
Spring is in the Air, 8 x 10
The Georgia landscape sure has a lot of green this time of year. It seems most artists love springtime. But I find it challenging to figure out what to do with all that lime green and kelly green everywhere you look. Although this scene, painted en plein air, doesn't quite capture the genuine greenery present at this location, I did my best to come up with a more eyepleasing color palette.
