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.

Toby 11" x 14"
This is Toby. He was a rescue cat who is currently being cared for by my good friend Carol at the Cape Cod Cat Hospital. Toby was horribly injured and abused. Both his ears are gone. He has a pin in one of his legs that had been broken and never set so it healed crooked. He has numerous physical problems, but the best personality in the world. Carol will be adopting him as soon as he has been healed of the worst of his injuries. When I got to meet him several months ago I knew I was going to have to paint him. He has a cat angel looking out for him ....and her name is Carol. This is my gift to her.
