Welcome to my art blog.

This is where you'll find some of the things I'm trying to accomplish... a little of this and that. Paintings, photography, collage and sewing...every artful endeavor helps me keep my sanity in this mixed up world.

Playing with Shadows

This painting entitled "Pear with Mini-Blinds" is a recent attempt to think like a pastel artist. With the technique of an acrylic underpainting in a complementary color, it is a bit of a mind bender for me to try to visualize what it will look like with pastel laying over top... which is actually kind of fun... the not knowing and being pleasantly surprised. I think that is why I paint... to constantly be amazed at the results I sometimes get. It is never dull.

This pastel painting measures 9" x 13" and is painted on illustration board. If you are interested in purchasing this painting, please contact me for pricing information.
