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.

Afternoon Glow, pastel, 8 x 10
This morning's paint-along demo I did for a private class. It started out as a "minimal stroke" painting. I noodled with it more than I had planned, but it still survived. I was happy to capture the glow that this location has when the sun hits it just right.
