    Hi Mary,
    I teach art to senior citizens as an internship, and I was wondering if it would be okay to use one of your oil pastel drawings to show my students different types of blending techniques. I think your seascapes are absolutely beautiful and would be quite inspiring to them! Of course, I would credit your work fully, and I always include the websites of where my students can find them.

    Thank you,

      Hi Kristine, thank you for asking and for your kind thoughts about my work – is much appreciated. Please feel free to use one of the oil pastels as an example in your class. If you would please use my blog address. OPs is a great medium that can be manipulated for a wide range of styles. Thanks for asking and best wishes to the people taking the class.

    Dear Mary – sorry to hear about your family emergency. Your work is very inspiring. I am partly retired but teach some Drawing Techniques classes to adult learners. I want to extend my teaching to include oil pastels and the class is working on a project called The Seaside – to include many different aspects according to how they want to interpret it. Your use of pastels is just amazing – such a wonderful handling of sea and light. Thank you so much for sharing it in your blog. I am just writing to ask your permission to show my students your work in an A4 handout of thumbnail images as a teaching aid, with full details about this blog and how to find it, so that they can take more time looking at your work. They don’t have access to a computer in the class. Best wishes from Sheila

      Thank you Sheila, much appreciate your thoughtful comments.

      Thank you for asking permission to use some of my seascape images for your class. Yes, please do – I hope that my work provides good work examples of what is possible with oil pastels and painting the sea. It is the one subject that I am most connected too. If you make a handout please include my blog information and that my work is copyrighted. If you would, please send me a copy of what you hand out so I have a copy for my records. Thanks again Sheila and best wishes on your class, I hope my material is helpful in your instructions.
