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.

River Walk, oil, 10 x 8
Today a few of my plein air artist friends and I had local artist/instructor John Brian Guernsey teach a private plein air class for us. Check out his work at http://johnbguernsey.blogspot.com/. The weather turned on us a bit and we all resorted to fetching spare umbrellas from our cars and taping them to our easels, but it was otherwise a productive and enjoyable morning of painting. I painted River Walk after watching John demo a similar view.
