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.

Cape Cod and the islands abound in these little gray summer homes that stand empty all winter. They seem sadly abandoned until May when the summer people return and the cottages are full of children and brightly colored swim suits and towels hang on the porch railings once more. I like them in the winter. They stand dark and stoic. The promise of a warm sandy season to come.
