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.

Mount Timpanogos, Alpine Loop"
"Mount Timpanogos, Alpine Loop (5" x 7")
This was a commissioned piece for one of my clients out in Utah. She wanted something reflecting Autumn and the West where she lives. I had travelled out there many years ago before my kids were born and taken lots of pictures. I totally lucked out with this one. Turns out my client can see this mountain range from her house. Sometimes things just happen for a reason.
