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.

Little Old Barn, oil, 8 x 10
This morning I had the pleasure of painting in the beautiful little town of Adairsville, GA. Lots of farms, barns, streams, pastures, and lots of other scenery I love to paint. I'm fortunate to have a good friend, Jan Levin, also an artist, who lives there and invited me and another artist friend, Jill McGannon, up to her house last night so we could catch the early morning light and get several hours of painting in before Jill and I had to head home for our kids' "bus stop" time. Little Old Barn is one of my paintings from this morning.
