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.

"Buster" (20" x 20")
I just finished this commissioned portrait. Buster is a cutie pie, but gave his mom a serious face in this picture. I love painting people's pets. I always do the eyes first because if I don't get their personality captured there the portrait will not be successful. He had lovely brown eyes and so much to say with them.
