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.

Patterns of Summer
"Patterns of Summer" (6" x 6")
When all the family gets together for those summer reunions at the beach there are always clotheslines of towels and bathing suits hanging up to dry at day's end. The colors and patterns and clothespins were just too much to resist. These two suits belong to my niece Lucy and her Uncle Stephen.
