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.

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!
