Welcome to my blog. I document my paintings and drawing as I work on them and post the photos here with my motivation and would love to here from you and what you like.


We will be teaching pastel portrait painting In September (2017) at TAG in Warren, OH.

We have plans to teach the fundamentals of creating a beautiful pastel portrait from a favorite photo.  If you have basic drawing skills you will enjoy learning how to handle the pastels and what papers/boards/sanded surfaces you can use with this beautiful soft pigment medium bound only by a wax binder leaving the rich colors that distinguishes pastel work from all the other color mediums.
