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.

Lupins Lead to the Sea
"Lupins Lead to the Sea" (6" x 6")
Upon the hill the lupins grow, They sway in the breeze like dancing gnomes Which take delight in all they see, As they sing their praise of the rolling sea... And as they sleep the sea rolls on though never far it roams from them, Through storms, through gales, or what may come, Their pink and purple will endure as they dance in the wind, And share deep their fun.
