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.

Color on the Cape
"Color on the Cape"
(5" x 7")
I was drawn to the layered look of these bushes along the shoreline and decided to use layers of color to capture the image. This is another part of the Great Marsh in Barnstable.
