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.

Tree Music 5" x 7"
Trees have a rhythm and a pattern to their leaves and branches. I took the photo for this painting a few years ago walking in woods and randomly taking shots up into the trees from the path. This tree seems to have a whirling song in branches and so I listened and tried to capture what I heard.
