This is a blog to share my love of pastels. Daily practice isn't always possible, but it remains the best way to make consistent progress.

Best Friends (Woody and Buzz, Two Yellow Labs) - 9" x 10" Pastel
Everyone who knows me knows that I love dogs, and that I have a Sheltie named Trixie. But if I didn't have a Sheltie, maybe I'd have a Lab...you gotta love 'em! These two handsome guys belong to my friend Lori.
I spent countless hours drawing and painting alongside my artist dad when I was a kid. Then, art took a back seat to career for many years.
One day, an article about daily painters inspired me. Each day, I'd paint and post a new small work on this blog ... sometimes at midnight!
Now, newly retired, I'm painting and blogging again. Taking classes, too. I’ll be learning about painting for the rest of my life. It's a never-ending journey.
But when the painting gods smile -- which they occasionally do -- there's no better feeling than standing back, seeing what you created, and sharing it with others.
I live in Westchester, NY with my husband, and a rescue dog named Sam. Occasionally, our grown kids camp out here, too.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
