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.

Wood & Water, New Work, November 13, 2011
Wood & Water
9" x 12"
I love wooden boats and when I saw this one while my husband and I were out fishing I snapped it up to paint it. I especially liked all the dock in the background and the purple hue that the shadows gave it.
