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.

Rum River Glow, oil, 11x14
Last week in my weekly pastel classes, we did color studies of this scene in preparation for painting a larger version this week. I enjoyed working on the small pastel studies and decided to try it in oil. The photo here caught some glare on the left, so I'll need to shoot it again later.
