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.

Glory in the Flower
"Glory in the Flower" 5" x 7"
This painting was done specifically for our Daily Paintworks weekly challenge to paint a rose up close and personal. I took the reference photo out on Nantucket island where the flowers are numerous and quite glorious.
