Pastels

"These colored chalks have been around since the late 1600ís.
They are always visible in the studio, lined up in their boxes and ready to be put to work. The colors are so compelling lying side by side, making a rainbow in the studio

Unlike the oil paints, pastels are already mixed, waiting to be put to use. On the paper their dusty quality collects light, layering with the other colors in a unique way. I have often made use of their immediacy to make quick sketches, experiments and enjoyed putting them to use for larger, formal works."




All images are pastel on sanded paper
