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 painting was an experiment. I used a glass of water to figure out what the waterline might look like. I left the bottom rather empty of creatures to let the viewer decide what might come swimming out of the mirk.
