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.

Miss Ruby's Farm, oil, 8 x 10
An oil version of a pastel piece I painted a few weeks ago (Feb. 24 blog post). I worked mostly from the pastel version and only occasionally glanced at the original photo. This is a scene from Adairsville, GA...a cute farm (Miss Ruby's farm, of course),where I've painted on location a couple of times, but photographed this scene while I was there.
