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.

Beach Along Cotuit Bay (5 x 7 in)
I walk my dog along this beach a few times a week. I was struck by the curving waves and sand designs. Seafoam is fun to paint too. There is always a beautiful color just under the surface that comes through in places and in the waves as they turn over.
