Pastel Dust 2014


Happy New Year!  It’s our chance, once again to plan, scheme, make resolutions, etc.

Take a moment and make some plans with your art.  Is it to enter a few more shows, seek out a new gallery for representation, schedule a workshop…Maybe it is to paint or draw every day.  That is my goal.  Each day to pick up a journal and do some sketching or the iPad and do something in ArtPro or ArtRage.  Challenge yourself…if you normally paint landscapes, mix it up and paint still-lifes or try some new products.  don’t be afraid of failure or rejection.  All these things will make you a stronger artist!

Happy New Year!Sheep markers...WHAT???

About bonnie griffith

I am a landscape artist who works in pastels, oils and acrylics. My work focuses on representational studies of the western US. I am basically self taught with lots of workshops and studies with several landscape artists such as Bruce Haughey and Clark Elster. I live in southwestern Idaho, am a native Montanan with a strong connection to the land. I spend as much time as I can in MT painting as well other parts of the northwest. I appreciate getting out in the field and working plein air because there is nothing like completing a painting in the true light of day and visually not being compromised by the use of a photo. In my work, my goal is to produce a piece of work that draws the viewer into the painting and challenges them to explore the scene; get a sense of the time of day, the temperature, the light or lack of. If I have gotten that viewer to step out of their reality and into that painting and enjoy it, then my work was accomplished as I wished. View all posts by bonnie griffith
