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.

Seems Like Just Yesterday
"Seems Like Just Yesterday"
(9" x 12")
I have a show coming up this next week for the Cape Cod Art Association entitled "The Beauty of White". So obviously all the entries must have white involved to some extent. I was looking for some old photos to get some ideas and came across an old pair of my children's baby shoes and thought it doesn't get much more beautiful than a memory of your babies. So I kept it soft and it really does seem like just yesterday that they were little and wearing these little shoes. My son now works for Kia and my daughter is in college. I feel like I'm 100 years old. Oh well. Cheers!!
Artist Footnote (1/19/2011) - I just found out that this painting was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Cape Cod Exhibit.
