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.

November Afternoon, oil, 6 x 8
This was done today on location in Princeton, Minnesota, where I visit family once or twice a year. I've painted this area frequently from photos I've taken over the many years that I've been coming here. I've even painted this particular view recently in pastel (shown in an earlier post) from one of my photos. This is my first plein air effort up here.
