This little jewel of a Smudge piece of mine, of El Capitan in Yosemite is in the “America the Beautiful” Show taking place now until the end of July at the Wilbur May Museum Reno, NV. It’s one of three of my entries into the Latimer Art Club Artown Exhibit and Sale. Latimer Art Club.
Earlier this month I dropped off several of my Smudge works for sale at Prism Gallery Carson Valley’s Premiere Gallery, representing award-winning artists from the Northern Nevada and Sierra Nevada Regions. My work will be up until the end of the July.

This is an image I created in my Oil Pastel Smudge technique. We are in the middle of a pandemic and wearing a mask and social distancing is a must to get though these challenging times. Please be part of the solution. We will all get thought this if we work together! Stay safe and healthy!
For some odd reason I feel this was appropriate as it is July 4th. A different celebration being held everywhere in the United States. I love the land of the free and the home of the brave! Right now, getting away from everything Covid 19, I think of my garden, sanctuary and butterflies. Freedom! How it can be taken away in a moment. That being said, stay healthy, wear a mask in public and social distance where you feel it is necessary. We can only get though this time together! Drawing and writing positive words beautifully has helped me to stay calm, focused and aware of the future I wish to bring into the world.
While staying home and staying safe I have been working on several of my Oil Pastel Smudge works. This one was in color and I made it a black and white. Enjoy!
