Back to Pastel

June 7, 2022

Feels good to have a pastel in hand again! I’ve been happily working away in oil to keep up with demand for my work. But it has been a long hiatus. Too long.

I think my work in general leans toward a decidedly intuitive approach to art making. But with the directness of pastel it becomes even more so. Sometimes it feels as though my oil paintings are trying to “catch up” with my pastels. I’m enthralled with this warm manganese violet color that turned up!
