Testing, Testing

I AM HAPPY! I was recently gifted a slightly used box of chalk pastels. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I opened the box but was pleased to see a beautiful selection of Nupastels, Sennelier, Schmincke, and handmade Diane Townsend Terrages Pastels. WOW, what a treasure! Additionally, there included a book, The Pastel Book: Materials and Techniques for Today’s …

Three New Works Added!

Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve added any new work to my website. So I’m happy to say, “Here it is!” The medium for these works is pastel on sanded paper.

How to buy art: Why does it cost so much!?!

“I really love that painting, but is it worth the price?” Have you ever asked yourself this? I have. Prices for original artwork can seem random and mysterious. This is understandable, since many artists price their work based on a variety of factors and aren’t always clear about what those factors are. Time is often the most significant component when …
