In March 2008 I made the suprising discovery that I had a little artistic talent which had been lying dormant all my life. I started with simple still life subjects but as time went on I progressed to more complex subjects.
The only medium I paint in is pastels which I love. They do tend to be messy but I love the immediacy of the work, involving no mixing with turps or water, just pure pigment directly applied and mixed right there on the paper.

This little painting was done during the month of January when my husband and I rented a condo in Florida to escape the colder weather. I took a minimum of pastel supplies with me, but enough to complete a couple of pieces.
