I've been working with pastels and oils for almost 15 years, many of them studying under master painters. My paintings focus on design and the mysteries of color harmony, and I especially love abstracted landscape. Last year I was chosen by the Art Students League of Denver for "20 Years Impact, Two," showcasing people who studied at the ASLD and achieved artistic success. Boulder and Whiterock Ditch runs right through the neighborhood I've lived in for most of my life. To me, painting is like fishing: sometimes you catch one, and sometimes you don't. But there's never regret, because to paint outside (and to stare at water) is pure aesthetic joy.
