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.

Emerald Moss (5" x 7")
Here on Cape Cod there are many cottages that have moss for a yard instead of grass. The color ranges from unbelievable shades of emerald and lime to purple and yellow. Right now with the snow not long gone it's already a pretty yellow green in many of the yards around our neighborhood.
