Current Projects

Jay, my parents, and I visited Mont Saint-Michel last summer; here’s a memory of that trip that I finished up today. I used oil paints on Arches watercolor paper under the pastels…and realized why people generally use canvas for oils and paper for watercolors…the paper sucked my oil up faster than I could keep laying it down. I guess it’s a no-brainer but I thought I’d try anyway. The thing is, I’m new to pastels, and it was intimidating to start on that big piece of white paper with just pastels…

I started another memory piece today, from a visit to Provence with our friends Abe & Lisa. This time I’m sticking to oils on canvas.

I’ll keep experimenting with pastels, though…if for nothing else because they are just so pretty there in their box—I can’t resist.
