24″x 18″ pastel on sanded paper

Life can be prickly. Bloom anyway.

I painted this cactus painting as a demo for the Rockwall Art League. Always fun to introduce pastels to a group of artists (or non-artists) that aren’t familiar with the medium. The brilliance of the colors and speed in which a painting appears from blank paper always brings ooooos and aaaaas.

If you would like to learn more about pastels, consider taking one of my classes or workshops.

Cork and Canvas is an evening class appropriate for all experience levels. It is different from painting with a twist, in that you will make your own art from a photo of your choosing (can even be your own). It is just as fun as painting with a twist, and beginners will be just as successful, but the art is higher level. 2 day sale! 25% off Cork and Canvas. Code: CC25OFFOCT2018

My workshops are a deeper dive into the process of making art. They are usually 2 full days to a week long. Doing a longer workshop can take your art years farther than you would get on your own (in just a few days). I teach workshops in pastels, oils, and mixed media. Learn more About my workshops.

I still have a few spots left in my 2 day mixed media workshop coming up Nov. 14th and 15th. I supply all the materials, and you will will go hone with two 16″x20″ paintings. Sign up today. Just think what cool Christmas gifts those paintings will make!
