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.

The Last Leaves
"The Last Leaves" (5" x 7")
We've had a lot of windy days on the Cape and today it is supposed to rain most of the day. Our beautiful leaves are already starting to get a bit threadbare on some of the trees, especially near the tops where the wind really whips the branches around. I caught a last bit of pretty color on these birches.
