Oil Pastels are excellent for depicting more than just as scene; the rich colors represent energy and passion. The wind is blowing through a desert at sunset
This dramatic sunset with it’s vivid colors jumps into any room and conversation.
This painting was done without brushes or tools – just the oil pastels and my fingers.
Oil Pastels on Paper require framing behind glass with matting so as to avoid touching the glass.

A Detroit native, I moved to the San Francisco bay area in 1970 where I founded a printmaking collective, East Bay Media. Our focus was social justice leaflets and posters, including the “Bring the Monster Down” poster, included in the “All of Us or None: Social Justice Posters of the San Francisco Bay Area” exhibit at the Oakland Museum in 2012. I had a successful 12 year art career in Spain with exhibitions at The Galeria La Cortina in Barcelona, The Galeria Internacional in Ibiza, and the Galeria Torres Begue and Galeria Kandinski in Madrid. I later worked as an arts conservator at S.F. bay area museums; including the restoration of the Jade Pagoda at the Oakland Museum and the conservation/installation of the Spanish ceiling at the Palace of Legion of Honor. My newest work can be seen at various locations in northern California.
