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.

Gull Lake, Snow Covered, oil, 8 x 10
I started this painting on location, standing on Gull Lake in Minnesota (it was mostly frozen), but finished it today back home in the studio. So I guess you could call it my first completed painting of 2012!
