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.

Thanks for following along,






I just LOVE a challenge!

When asked recently to paint a child’s portrait,

I decided I would use pastels.

I had used them for this painting of our neighbors’ dog, Tasha…

here’s that story

But I felt the need to upgrade my materials;

so I ordered professional grade soft pastels,

and high quality pastel paper in a variety of colors!

(You may remember my recent blog post

regarding my affinity for art supplies😉

Once I got my new supplies

I was ready to tackle this challenge…

and I LOVED it!
