Medium: Pastel Painting
I grew up with art, and after a 30 year career devoted to public policy and land use, I gave myself permission just to paint. I studied watercolor with Ruth Armitage and John Salminen and with master pastellists Albert Handel and Richard McKinley. My primary medium is pastel. I focus on color and texture and the emotional content I can convey to my viewer.
I have been juried into shows sponsored by the Northwest Pastel Society, Watercolor Society of Oregon, the Hui Noe Art Center on Maui and Best of the Gorge at Columbia Center for the Arts.
