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.

Salt Pond near Craigsville Beach
(5 x 7in)
Cape Cod abounds in salt ponds and marshes. We were at Craigsville Beach last weekend. This painting is from some photos I took that day. Beautiful clouds in the sky and I was pleased to capture them in this pond so I could also paint the marsh up close and still include the great sky.
