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.

Ride At First Light
"Ride At First Light" (8" x 10")
I have been wanting to do this piece for quite some time. I didn't want to paint trees today so I took several of my favorite pictures and placed them face down on the table and chose one at random and this was the one I chose. It still feels like autumn, but misty and fresh. The light was what drew me to this piece. The light and the relationship between a rider and their horse. Such dedication.
