Crazy Schedule

I'm back! Getting this blog off the ground has been a long process, and as you may have noticed, not very regular, yet. My only excuse is that life has been hectic in the last few months - getting our home of 26 years ready to sell - and now it is sold and we are planning the 'next steps'. And I just started two new painting series - one which features the same abstract figure, and the other, still life objects,  that for a lack of a better description, 'fade in and out' on the surface. More to come on these later.
Now, back to the landscapes of last summer. I really like them - hope you do too.

Spring Light   30"x30"
Wetlands  24"x30" 

Hot Day in July  30"x36" SOLD

Seeing Red  18"x24"

Blue Marsh  24"x30"

At the End of the Day  20" x 24"

Hopefully you can see the pastel lines on the surface of the paintings. I started using soft pastel over acrylic, and throughout the painting process in the first landscape series, but this summer this technique really began to dominate, and helped me to stay loose. And I finally discovered a great, non toxic, completely natural fixative spray fixative called SpectraFix.   
What do think?


  1. Gorgeous! I really love the fourth one down but they are all beautiful.

  2. Thank you Kim! Your comments have been so positive and supportive.
