Drawing / Pastel


From the Artist:

I enjoy painting many subjects in varied mediums – watercolor, acrylic and most recently soft pastel. I've studied with Sally Strand, Mike Beeman, Albert Handell, Enid Wood and Gale Gassiot. When I was introduced to soft pastels in April 2013, I found immediate gratification and have been exploring this medium voraciously. Most recently, since I've planted as many real gardens as possible in my yard, I've extended my garden to my artwork. I've been combining my love of painting with nature by creating paintings of flora, fauna and landscapes of the Southwest. As a lifetime Texan, I'm also drawn to landscape and architectural images of the Southwest such as Big Bend, New Mexico and Arizona.
