Plein Air on Mountain View Road

This is right up the road from where I live. It's a spectacular view. I perched on a milk crate with a drawing board in my lap and worked on this early last week in the late afternoon. My order of Mount Vision pastels had arrived and I was trying them out for the first time. They're creamy, but not quite as luxurious as Sennelier pastels.

Plein Air, Mansfield New Jersey

I did this small, pastel last week in a field right off Rt. 57 in Mansfield. The colors look a bit more intense on my screen than the original piece. I put it in the linen mat and thought that it complimented the colors well. I'm going out this afternoon. It's hot, but the humidity is gone.

Plein Air Landscape Block

This is a landscape that I did in pastels in Harmony, New Jersey last summer. It's a beautiful, peaceful spot. The name really fits the place. I decided to make a print of it the other day and mount it on this block of wood.
The block is available here.

Bookmarks for the Cook

I just added these to my Etsy shop. I love doing food illustrations and I think the prints of these turned out particularly well. The original are all pastels done on Mi-Tientes paper. Thanks for looking!

Template to Make Jumping Jack

I put the template to make this Jumping Jack at my shop. The illustration is done in pastel on a light grey paper. When you add strings on the back the figure will "jump".

My Chicken

Had some prints made of the chicken from my illustration for the website "They Draw and Cook". Fits perfectly in this frame that I had on hand, and it does add a pop of color to my kitchen.
