Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Pastel

It is all here! Well maybe not everything but there is a treasure chest of pastel and painting information right here in this blog! I have been blogging since 2005 and every single post is still online!

In the early days this blog was just a way for me to keep accountable to my goal of daily painting. As I studied and took workshops I began to share what I was learning. Several years ago I began to teach and so the blog has evolved into a teaching tool. It is now packed with information about painting and pastels.

Did you know that you can search this blog?
If you get the blog by email you are not seeing the information and links that you would see if you went directly to the blog. Take a look at the actual page here: . Look  at the column on the right for the search box. If you have any pastel questions just search with some keywords and you will see everything I ever wrote about that topic!

What if you don't have time to search and want your information in a more organized and orderly format?
I have you covered! You may have heard about Patreon. It is a platform that allows creators to share information in a very easy to use format. The content is available to you....the patrons for a small subscription. My subscription starts at just $4 a month. Your support gives me the freedom I need to continue creating great content. One of the features of the silver level is the weekly curated blog posts. I do the work for you and choose links to articles related to our studies.
At the silver level you are also entered into a monthly drawing for an original painting. The painting in this post is April's selection.  Consider giving Patreon a try!

Hi Karen. Have you thought of posting an example of what the silver level Patreon membership offers? I can imagine what a curated blog post looks like but I'm not sure.

Good idea! I’ll do it when I get home from my painting trip. Curated blog posts are links to posts that I’ve written that apply to the current topic of study
