My blog features painting tips and information for pastelists and oil painters that I commonly teach in my workshops, new artwork as I complete it, news about my upcoming workshops, and other interesting tidbits for artists.

Two demos from this week's classes.
Autumn Reflections, pastel, 9 x 12
Autumn Ablaze, pastel, 14 x 11
Trying to get caught up and post all of my demos for the week before heading off tomorrow for a plein air paintout at Smith-Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw tomorrow and Friday. So here are two of my demo paintings from my Monday and Wednesday classes. On Monday we studied reflections in water, and on Wednesday I challenged us all to pull one tree out of a mass of busy tree foliage using color vibrancy and soft/hard edges. Of course I couldn't resist using autumn scenes for both!
