Love the Leaf

I am very excited to announce that my painting "Portrait of a Tree" is now hanging in the Mallory/Wurtzburger gallery at the Dixon, as part of the Love the Leaf exhibit.  This exhibit is made up of works of art from Dixon supporters.  It runs July 14-September 8, 2013.  The opening reception is Thursday July 18th at 6 p.m.

"Portrait of a Tree" was painted en plein air in pastels on a 7x5 panel.  I have found so much inspiration in painting outdoors with pastels.  It is such an easy medium to pack up and head out to paint with.  I was first introduced to pastels as a twelve year old, and have been in love with them ever since!
