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.

"Green Isolation" (6" x 6")
I had been looking for some new material to paint and came across some pictures of old barns and farm buildings that I had taken years ago. It's funny how something just suddenly appeals to the artist in me and interests me enough to do a series. Back when this was taken I wasn't at all intrigued. When I looked at it today there were all kinds of wonderful details and colors that pulled me right in. This barn is on a rolling hill in North Carolina. It sits all alone in green isolation.
