For a long time I've dreamt of opening up my own shop to sell my original art, prints and, hopefully - books. I currently have a collection of 21 landscapes for sale, just in time for the holidays!
Here are a few landscapes from my selection of 21 original pastel landscapes for sale. All of these were painted on Bainbridge Island, Washington this past September. Check out the shop for more!

My father recently had a few of my paintings framed. I really like the simple mat and framing that his framer recommended. With pastel paintings, the mat needs to be slightly raised off of the surface because of the dust. This looks great and adds some dimension to the piece. I like how the borders of the paintings are exposed although I think they would also look great cropped. Either way - nice job!
Stay tuned - I will be updating the shop in 2017 with new items as I finish them.
