I love historic places and the Occidental is dripping in history. The things in the case on the table that look like eyes are the original door handles touched by lots of cowboy legends! Soft pastels on Uart
Landscapes and other
Landscapes and things I find interesting to paint.
Art is my passion since I was a small child. Unfortunately my education and career was focused on information technology and I am mostly self-taught when it comes to my art. I have read many books, watched a lot of videos and have the great pleasure to attend a few workshops with master pastellists. My desire with art is to convey the beauty I see in nature, animals and people in a way that captures the emotion of life. I began by drawing with charcoal and graphite, then colored pencils -- mostly portraits. I found my medium in soft pastels in 2007 and I continue to refine my techniques to capture light, shadows and color. Thanks for taking a look at my work and please don't hesitate to leave a comment or contact me.

| ||Portraits are tough as you have to capture the personality. I’ve been fortunate to complete several I am proud of and my last portrait was of my Mom and Dad brings me such joy every time I look at it.|
