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.

I really like painting stormy scenes, but it's hard to catch them. You have a small window of time when the storm is close, but not yet so windy or rainy you have to worry about your camera or getting electrocuted by a bolt of lightening. I told my husband if I hadn't been a painter I'd have been a storm chaser. I have not changed anything about the actual photo and I don't know about you, but I see a baleful eye making landfall.
