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.

Winter Serenity, pastel, 12 x 16
In my Wednesday and Thursday classes we're starting a series on winter landscapes. This first scene has just portions of the landscape covered in snow, so the challenge was to show the snow peeking through the grassy field. In the next few classes, we'll have it "snow a little bit more" in each scene. Winter Serenity is my demo from this morning's class.
