"Autumn Dune" 18x24 Pastel
Thanks for visiting my website! For some reason, the true colors of the paintings are inaccurate on the site. If you're interested in a painting, I can send you a better photo file via email.
Plein Air Easton
I am pleased as punch to have won 2nd place in the Plein Air Easton Quick Draw event (for non-competing artists) on Saturday, July 23rd! We couldn't put a mark on our paintings until the horn blew at 10am, and then had to have the painting framed and on an easel at noon. A challenge, for sure, especially since it felt like 105 degrees! Judge Julia Marciari-Alexander, the Director of the Walters Museum in Baltimore, had her work cut out for her, with over 150 entries!
Classes and Workshops
Both in-person and online classes will begin in late September. I will be offering in-person classes on Wednesday afternoons and Thursday evenings at the Arts of Great Falls School of Art, as well as a beginner class online, probably on Monday evenings. Click on Classes above for more info. You can also leave your email with me under "Contact" if you'd like to be notified.
I recently received the most exciting news that I have been elected a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America! I'm so honored to be among this group of talented artists using the wonderful medium of soft pastels. I can now proudly place the initials "P.S.A." after my signature :-)
If you happen to be in the beautiful Outer Banks and want to see some very fine art, check out the Seaside Art Gallery in Nagshead. I have several Seascapes in the gallery. See www.seasideart.com for more information and some beautiful art.
