My Wood Panel Prints Are Ready!

Finally after months of working on this plan,

my very first wood panel prints are ready!

Here’s what I did:

First I stained the sides of 12″ x 16″ wood panels

different colors, like this green…

Then I mounted prints of my bison pastel painting on top.


Last, I attached a hanger and a label.

I’m super excited about how they turned out!

I did the same thing with my pastel painting

of Old Main in two sizes: 10″ x 10″ and 12″ x 12″.

And today,

I delivered them to Red Caboose and Wildflower Gift Gallery.

Tomorrow they’ll go to Hidden Creek Mercantile in Hurricane,

and Eggplant Gift Shop in Charleston.

More designs are coming soon, as well as prints of these…

I’ll keep you posted!

Capitol or Capital??

I’m at the Capitol (building) …

in our capital city (Charleston)

frequently these days…

so I decided to paint it…


I probably should have painted the Kanawha River view…

 with a reflection…

I’ll do that next time!

I’m in love with pastels!

So I did this pastel piece a couple of years ago…

And shared the story here.

Like many artists,

I enjoy trying different forms of media…

and I wrote about that in my little art bio last year, but..

I’ve been primarily focused on watercolor for a while,

and I even made the Kanawha Metro.


after recently completing several commissioned pieces in pastel, and

studying with some pastel artists online…

Sorry watercolor, I’m now in love with pastels!

I’m super excited to be participating (for the first time) in

Art in the Park

this coming May!

I’ll have my original pastels, prints, and framed prints (ready for your wall).

I won’t be taking commissions for the next several months,

so I can focus on the show.
