 Finding your truth is a wonderful thing. Being recognized and having a chance to share it is even better. I am very honored to be able to share my wildflower paintings and my thoughts on painting them in this month's Pastel Journal magazine.  I just got my copy in the mail and I am on cloud 9!  Here is a quote from the article about the painting above 'Down in the Meadow'
"Down in the Meadow was inspired by a roadside spot in the North Carolina mountains located on a busy road surrounded by buildings, "Margulis says. "I found that id I crouched low and looked up I could avoid the visual clutter, transforming the scene into a more intimate landscape"

My painting 'Summer Reprise' made the cover!


I hope you will enjoy your copy of the magazine which is filled with great articles.  I share my feature with two great artists, Donna Biggee and Joel Spector.  My friend and fantastic artist Barbara Jaenicke has a great skill builder article in the issue. If you are not a subscriber you can purchase a copy online in the Northlight Shop HERE

'Summer Joy'         5x7       pastel       $50

I have made a digital downloadable demo available in pdf format on one of the techniques I use to paint daisies in a meadow.  I welcome you to have a look in my Etsy shop for more information.
