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.

'Gator Trail (5" x 7")
The reference for this painting comes from my trip to St. George Island in Florida. We spent one afternoon hiking through the St. George Conservation Area and it was full of marsh life. Lots of crabs, birds and butterflies. I don't know if a gator actually made this path through the marsh grass to the water, but some creature did.
