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.

Into the Woods
Into the Woods (5" x 7")
This piece was created for our Dailypaintworks weekly challenge. This week our challenge was to paint a path into the light. I chose this particular woody path because I like the contrast of the blue green darkness into the yellow sunlight. I also loved the shadow play on the path. Don't you want to go into that lighted space and see what's there?
