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.

"Maxcy Pond" (5" x 7")
Maxcy Pond is a lake on Nantucket Island. I wanted to emphasize the green of the wild beach roses against the purple tinted marsh grasses. There are also lily pads and flowers all along the edges. A lovely place.
