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.

Tree Light (12 x 16 in)
Trees are especially fun to paint. They each have their own rhythms and patterns that seem to carry a lyrical message. I love their grace and fine lines. This pine is growing along the Santuit River on Cape Cod. I caught it just as the sun was coming up and catching the very top.
