Pastels are an amazingly gracious art medium. They are forever in their flexibility and at the same time maintain their essense indefinitely. The purist of pigment provides an enduring medium to transcend generations.
I love the immediacy of working with pastels as well as the fact that my painting will sit patiently, fresh and workable, until I'm ready to return to it.
The tiny pastel particles rest lightly on the paper providing a special translucency which further extends the artistic relationship with light. It truly is a magical performance.
