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 Grass in Snow
"Beach Grass in Snow"
9" x 12"
The wind off the ocean creates wonderful edges and shapes in the snow. The sun was going down and gave the brown beach grass a beautiful orange tint. I like that it's almost abstract, but not quite.
