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.

This path along the river is in Yellow River Park near Stone Mountain, Georgia. I used to walk my dog along this path quite often. Every spring these trees bloomed beautiful pink and white bell shaped blooms that were so numerous they drifted like snow when they fell off the trees. The light was really pretty.
