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.

Plein Air Painting at Smith-Gilbert Gardens
Rounding the Bend, 12 x 14
The Potting Shed, 12 x 14
This past week I spent two days at Smith-Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw, GA for a plein air painting event. We were fortunate to have great weather for both days, and it was a wonderful opportunity to paint among many talented artists. Here are two of the paintings I completed during the event. The top one, Rounding the Bend, was one of the seven award winners!
