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.

Pan in the Winter Garden
"Pan in the Winter Garden" (5" x 7")
This painting was created for this week's DPW challenge: to paint statuary. I chose to do a garden statue of Pan. He is one of my favorite mythological creatures who looks quite at home in a wild, winter garden setting.
