Burlington and still life

 Two very different paintings.  Been working on Burlington, 12 x 16 oil for a bit.  The still life is what I saw this morning when the light was coming into the room

"I'll get it"

This 12 x 12 oil has been a struggle.  A lot of elements vie for attention

in the garden

Finally home for a while after a lot of travel and teaching.  All fun but summer in New England is special.

This 8 x 10 is a demo from my Monday morning oil class

IAPS 2019

DEMO 16 X 20 PASTEL


Just back fro IAPS 2019...The International Association of Pastel Societies conference and show held in Albuquerque, NM every other year.  I juried the regular show with Liz Haywood Sullivan and Sally Strand...both amazing artists and fabulous people...and we were all accepted into the Masters Circle show.  The two were extraordinary.

I also taught a one day workshop and gave a two hour demo.  My horse racing pastel was the demo and the street scene was the demo I gave in the workshop.  Additionally, I was very honored to have my pastel from last year which was awarded the Prix de Pastel grace the cover of the beautiful catalog for the show.

A couple of paintigns

 The city scene was my demo from my oil class and is 8 x 10.  The other is a struggle I'm having in my studio.  I am caught between wanting it to be loose but also read.   It's good to show those struggles sometimes!
