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.

On the Bottom
"On the Bottom" (5" x 7")
All of our ponds are covered in a thin layer of ice and that got me thinking about the fish that live in the ponds and what it must be like in the cold on the bottom. So I painted a bass amongst some small new lily pads in a pond not so dark and unwelcoming with hope for the coming spring.
