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.

Barn on the Edge, oil, 9 x 12
A family member of mine in Minnesota has been suggesting for the past couple of years that I should paint this old, weathered barn before it falls into this little lake. It sits right on the very edge of the lake. I finally made it out there to take some photos of it on my last trip up there in December and painted this in the studio today.
