Handmade Pure Pigment Pastels

Handmade Pastels   •   $4 each

Try out a truly handmade pastel! I make pastels that I like to use myself. My pastels are large, soft and loaded with permanent pigments. Having a vivid and exciting palette is important in pastel painting and can add style and distinction to your paintings. I roll each pastel myself so my pastels are made in small limited quantities. I've made pastels for many years and know the qualities of a great pastel. I know you will enjoy using them! All sticks are $4.00 each. Contact me for information on assortments and availability. And be sure to check out my blog for some exciting studies on combining pastel with oil sticks!

Hopper House - oil   •   $600
16 x 20 image, 20 x 24 framed

I have always loved the work of the famed American painter Edward Hopper. He often painted lonely looking houses like this one that I spotted awhile ago in the nearby town of Blountville, Tenn. I like the contrast of the mostly warm landscape and the cool colors of the old farm house.

October Trail - oil   •   $600
16 x 20 image, 20 x 24 framed

I love this big field near Mosheim, Tenn. In the fall green gives way to a variety of unusual pinks, golds and violets. A Marsh Hawk is often cruising the field and the place is heavy with the wonderful atmosphere of fall.

Crystal Clear - oil   •   $600
16 x 20 image, 20 x 24 framed

This is from Surgoinsville Park in Surgoinsville Tenn. This is as pretty a park as you will find anywhere. In fall, the humidity is low and the sky and reflections in the Holston River are pristine and peaceful with a complete palette of autumn colors complimenting the cool blues of the river.

Calm Before Winter   •   $800
Click Here to watch a video of me painting this painting.

This oil stick painting is done from a favorite spot of mine, a park along the Holston River in Surgoinsville, Tennessee. Everyone seems to love the blazing colors at the peak of autumn, but my favorite time is later in the season. Along the river, you commonly will see less colorful trees like Sycamore and Box Elder with their more subtle tones of rust, browns and gold. As fall nears its conclusion, there is a quiet period before the cold moves in. I'll see calm partly cloudy days like this one with barely a ripple showing in the water. THese are the golden days for painting reflections and I try to take full advantage of them. I've painted this park many times. Each day is different with moods determined by the sun, sky and water. Just being in such a place raises my spirits as well!

Evening, Newland Farm   •   $250
11 x 14 - Artist Dream Permanent Oil Crayon Painting

This farm is about a mile from my home and I am sure to pass it every day. It's been in the Newland family for over a century. In the spring this field is carpeted with buttercups. In summer it turns from yellow green to a golden tone that lights up in the evening. This rim lighting effect is the subject of this painting done with my primary set of Artist Dream Permanent Oil Crayons.

Dream Stream   •   $250
11 x 14 - Artist Dream Permanent Oil Crayon Painting

I visit this spot every day and it is more and more ingrained into my memory. The sound of the water is very soothing. A huge storm enlarged the pools beneath the little falls last year and made the place even more beautiful as a painting subject. I've painted it many times but am certain to paint it many more. It's a special place for me.
