Mount Vision Pastels

Mount Visions are my workhorse brand of pastels.  I use them 100% of the time in all of my paintings. Did you know they have over 400 colors? This link is to their value index, which is so wonderful!! Talk about eye candy!! You can pick out whatever colors you need by value. Mount Visions are big and fat and loaded with pigments too!!

Oh, and they are only $3.25/stick. Now that is a HUGE bang for your buck!!  And one more thing, they are made right here in AMERICA!!!  Yes, they are made in Tampa, Florida!!
I absolutely love them......just saying.
(I am not affiliated with Mount Visions and do NOT make any money for saying nice things about them!!)

I'm always trying to learn more about color, but my first love is painterly realism. Here is my newest piece, finished tonight. It's very near and dear to my heart. It's from a photo I took in Old Forge, NY, at the Green Bridge, looking north.

I wanted color and to convey the delicate nature of the focal tree.

My time in Denver

I've come home renewed, re-energized, and inspired because of this beautiful and very talented artist.

Elizabeth Mowry

Four New Paintings!!

All of these pieces were done on Multimedia Pastel Board.  It's a new surface I discovered a couple of weeks ago.  It took a little bit to get used to, but it works very well with pastels.
