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.

(5" x 7")
This painting was created for a Dailypaintworks weekly challenge. The challenge was to paint birch trees in some form or other. I never realized how birch bark is like a fingerprint for that particular tree. Their lovely white presence is like a spirit in the forest.
