In addition to my landscape paintings, a selection of my new still life pastel paintings is on exhibit at:
"Within These Pages"
is a collection of still life pastel paintings that explores the the written word through art.
The power of the written word in its many forms has educated and entertained us, preserved history, documented facts and brought tears, hope and enjoyment to many. Old books with their fragile pages, classics, romance, music, and even newsprint all have a unique and wonderful quality that I capture in this series of work.
