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.

A Fall From the Blackthorn
"A Fall From the Blackthorn" (5" x 7")
I like to imagine human traits for birds, bees and other assorted animalia. So today this hornet had a bad bloom day. Who knows she was probably up all night with the other queen hornets and had one too many glasses of nectar. We all have days like this don't we?!
