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")
Blue dark was a term my brother and I used when we were young for that brief period of time between sundown and real darkness. We used it as an argument with our mom for staying up later because it was only "blue dark" outside not real dark. Sometimes it worked and we got popsicles; sometimes we got sent to bed anyway.
