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.

In Living Color
"In Living Color" (5" x 7")
I have been a bit sporadic of late with my blog posts. My daughter was diagnosed in late February with skin Melanoma stage 3. For the last few months I have been in Atlanta to be with her for 2 different surgeries to first remove the cancer on her skin and then determine how far it had spread. It was in one lymph node which was removed and as of today she has no detectable cancer. So thank you to everyone out there who sent her prayers and good wishes. We deeply appreciate it. So my painting has been a bit sketchy as well. Here is a new piece to celebrate life and all the color therein. It's good to be back!
