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.

Whitewater, Yellow River, Georgia
Whitewater on the Yellow River (5" x 7")
When I lived in Atlanta I used to walk my dog along this river daily. One Fall day I was struck by how the beautiful color of the leaves rushing by underwater looked like watercolor paint let loose in the current. I really tried to capture the speed and the movement with this painting. I was also interested in the colors of the rocks under the water.
