If I have seen and experienced the sunset or the garden or the person or beloved pet, it can become a commissioned work.
From my first stroke of solid pigment pastel on textured paper, I was hooked. The medium of soft pastels is totally appealing to me as an artist. Spontaneity, bold and vibrant color, and the options of smooth or textured strokes, blending or layering are all good things. Pastels are very forgiving….important in painting and in life. Once the idea for a painting has been planted in my head, it wanders around in there until the pastels beckon.
For information about a limited edition Gicleé, please contact me directly at 402-770-8830. Museum quality reproductions are available on a limited basis for my most requested pieces.
Pastels, while a special and wonderful medium, must be carefully handled in transit. For that reason, actual shipment costs will be added to the price of any pastels that require shipment.Type your paragraph here.

Unless it's raining, painting from nature is one of the true joys of pastels. My gallery of work contains both plein air and studio paintings.
