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.

Stained Glass in the Garden
"Stained Glass in the Garden" (6" x 6")
I took several photos of bees and butterflies in my garden last spring. The dark colored wings on this butterfly caught the sunlight in all kinds of colors. The spots of luminous pigment reminded me of church windows when the light shines through and makes them glow.
