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.

Desert Shadows, oil, 8 x 10
I painted this on location in Red Rock Canyon the day after the Plein Air Convention in Las Vegas ended. It was a beautiful, quiet day (best weather we had out there!), so it was nice to be able to take my time and really focus without distractions. Artist friend Karen Margulis and I spent the day in this location and did several paintings there. Just did a few touch ups in the studio on this one earlier today.
