Open Spaces explores the observance of beauty and change in our surroundings. Evoking sometimes fleeting moments of stillness and movement, memory and wonderment, the artists in this exhibition seek out a truth that may be unknown, revealing a deep rooted connection often found between individuals and their environments.
At my “Understanding Tonal Values” workshop at Arlene’s, I realized that I forgot my large pastel box. Luckily, I had my handy Terry Ludwig Basic Landscapes set with me – so I was able to get this demo done. I needed the tree stand to be darker than the darkest dark I had, so I decided to do an oil wash there. I am pretty pleased with how it all came together.
“Moody Marsh” | 12×12″ – pastel
Here’s a recent piece I started as a demo for the Artists in Action program at the Saratoga Springs Public Library. The program is run through a partnership of Saratoga Arts and the library to make the Arts more accessible to the public.
I’d like to thank Chris Alexander for considering me for this program. I had great fun!

This is the third submission to the 10×10 show at Saratoga Arts. I saw this beautiful little clearing on my bike ride. The light was absolutely brilliant in contrast with the shadowy foreground, so I had to capture it.
Here’s another painting currently being shown at my two-person show at Clement Art Gallery; Peace of Nature. I am excitedly looking forward to the opening this evening from 6 – 9 PM. I hope to see you there!
I’ve been busy busy, preparing for my upcoming two-woman show with Liron Sissman, at The Clement Art Gallery in Troy, NY. “Peace of Nature” opens on April 29 during Troy Night Out from 6 – 9 PM. I hope you can make it! Here’s the postcard:
This is oil painting is the largest piece of mine that will be in the show, and I SUPER pleased with the way it turned out. It’s inspired by an autumn hike I took a couple years ago with my little ones. This “stream” is actually the AuSable River in the Adirondacks. My happy place. 🙂
Here’s a quick little video of the making of it. Please turn up your volume, and enjoy!
I had a great time in my Color Harmonies workshop at Saratoga Arts yesterday. I woke up feeling a bit under the weather, but a little cold medicine took care of that, and I was off. I was looking forward to seeing my students, and actually painting during the day instead of just before midnight! Ha!
Many thanks to Donna, Jane, Lynn, Pam, Andrea, and Rita for joining me! They all produced great work, however I forgot to take pics.
This was my second demo that I finished up this morning. It’s an example of a orange/blue complementary color scheme.
