It was a great pleasure to be the featured artist at the Milton Art Center on November 9, 2013 from 12 – 4pm. It was wonderful to see old friends and meet new ones, as people dropped into the art center for the show and demonstration.

I shared some of my recent work, including field studies and finished paintings from Massachusetts, Vermont, Upstate New York, and Vancouver Island.  I also did a demonstration in soft pastel, showing the process I use, from underpainting to finished work.  During the demo I talked about how I use field studies done outside on location as references for final paintings to be done in the studio. I got great comments from the audience, many of whom had not seen the process of building a pastel painting before. It was great fun to share my love of pastels with such a wonderful group.
