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.

Late Autumn Marsh, oil, 8 x 10
My third day painting in Minnesota. Had a beautiful, sunny day today for this one. Although I seemed to struggle more with this one than the past two days of painting in colder, overcast conditions. It was such a pretty view that I think I resorted to "copying" the scene rather than interpreting it. I'm hoping to do all three of them larger in the studio at some point.
