Oil Pastel Landscape

The beauty of the mountains, hills, valleys and fields in Vermont are irresistible. This is an oil pastel landscape painted on wood. I began to work with oil pastels a few months ago and love the intensity color and ease of use.

Oil pastels are loaded with pigment, as permanent as oil paints, and are more stable than any other medium. They can be worked without using brushes, medium or solvent so cleanup is a breeze.

My plan is to create a series of at least twenty five landscapes that will be hung in a grid creating a fractured landscape, inspired by what I see as I travel around Vermont.
