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.

Here is another of my "stretching the brain" marsh paintings. Again, I am trying to be loose with my color choices and let things happen. I did a lot of underlying color (blue under orange, purple under light blue etc.) to create intensity and strong light. What fun!
