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.

Little Old Shed, pastel, 16x20
I had this piece set aside for a few months while I pondered what I needed to fix. I had some interesting shadows that were cast across the foreground, which I liked, but finally decided they weren't needed. I simplified the foreground, tweaked a few other areas, and said it's done.
