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.

A Secret Way
"A Secret Way" (6" x 6")
It was a gray rainy day today and I wanted to be somewhere else. So this painting is where my mind took me. I started in a garden and decided to open a way through to a sunny new country. I thought the peacocks made it seem more other worldly.
