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.

October Sky (5" x 7")
This painting is referenced from a photo of the Great Marsh in Barnstable. It was a beautiful October day and the color was clear and bright. I loved the little splash of red at the bottom. A nice surprise.
