I am a pastel painter. I chose this medium because of its immediacy and lightness. Pastel allows you freedom to build a richness of color in a single sitting that I did not find in any other kind of painting. It is the purest pigment in a soft medium that can still give you hard edges while maintaining its beautiful fluidity of expression.

Marsh Light (5 x 7 in)
Horseshoe Crabs (5 x 7 in)
I have just relocated to Cape Cod from Georgia. I am taking my camera everywhere on the cape. These last few weeks I have been taking photos of creatures and objects I find on the beach when I walk the dog in the morning. Some of these new pastels reflect what I discovered there. The orange marsh is a throwback to a trip to Savannah, Ga while the second marsh is from Prince Cove on the cape.
