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 from the Hill, oil, 8 x 8
I was working on another painting yesterday and finally had to set it aside for awhile. I then painted this last night. The photo still shows a lot of glare. I guess I piled on more paint than I usually do. This scene is from a farm in Adairsville, GA that I've painted on location a couple of times, and worked from one of my photos for this one.
