I have found pastel painting to be the best way of expressing my impressions
of the landscapes I so enjoy. The intense pigments allow the colorist in me to emphasize the moment with zeal.
Please peruse these images of my pastel paintings by using the slide show link, I have recently uploaded many new images of
more recent works.
Art is to enjoy!
My paintings are realistic images of landscapes and character portraits
that capture a moment or a feeling in expressive soft pastels. Some of the images are available in fine art giclee
reproductions in a variety of sizes. Please contact me for more information on availability of prints and originals.
I've moved- back to my homecountry in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan!
