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.

(5" x 7")
I have been feeling nostalgic for Michigan where I grew up. There were lots of dirt roads and small farms with a few horses in the pastures. A lot of them are gone now, swallowed up by developers and new subdivisions. Whenever I chance to see such a place, I always feel a little like I'm coming home.
